Firefighters have recovered a body from the ruins of a north-central Kansas home destroyed by flames overnight.
Dickinson County officials tell KSAL News that firefighters in Solomon was called to the scene shortly after 4:00 Tuesday morning. First responders found the home fully engulfed as they arrived.
The home’s occupant was not immediately accounted for. The body was recovered several hours later, but Fire Chief Randy Paden declined to release an identity until relatives were notified.
Neighbors said a man in his late 80’s lived in the home.
