Death in remote mobile home fire near White Earth under investigation

Human remains were found early Thursday morning in a mobile home fire in Sugar Bush Township in Becker County.

The mobile home was destroyed, said Sheriff Tim Gordon. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

The identity of the victim will not be released until the Ramsey County Coroner's Office confirms it, Gordon said.

The remote location hampered eyewitness sightings that might have aided fire departments during the evening hours, when the fire is believed to have started.

The White Earth Fire Department and White Earth Police Department responded to the scene shortly after 7 a.m. They found the remains trying to extinguish the hot spots.
