SOLOMON, Kan. (AP) _ Investigators in north-central Kansas are still trying to identify a body found earlier this week in the ruins of a burned-out home.

The Salina Journal reports that Solomon Fire Chief Randy Paden says an autopsy will be needed to make a positive identification.

The cause of the fire that broke out around 4 a.m. Tuesday is also under investigation.

Neighbors said the house was engulfed in flames as the Solomon volunteer fire department arrived. Firefighters found the body in the wreckage about six hours later.

The neighbors also said the home was occupied by a man in his late 80's. The man had not been accounted for by Thursday afternoon.
