Firefighters discovered a body Wednesday morning after responding to a house fire in Ken Caryl.
The victim’s identity is being held pending results of a death investigation, Jeffco sheriff’s spokesman Mark Techmeyer said. No other occupants were found in the house, though a dog was rescued and placed in the care of neighbors.
West Metro Fire Rescue received an emergency call shortly before 6 a.m., and 23 firefighters responded, assistant fire chief Scott Rogers said. The fire was almost completed extinguished about five minutes later, he said.
