(Received: 12 August 2002 / Published online: 17 January 2003)

Decay-spectroscopy study of the $^{\rm 67m}$Fe isomer has been performed at GANIL. This isomer is found to have an energy of 387 keV and a half-life of 75(21) $\mu$s. An intermediate excited state is introduced at 367 keV. The results are interpreted in terms of various nuclear models, and a deformed shape is inferred for 67Fe.
