SOLOMON, Kan. (AP) -- Firefighters have recovered a body from the ruins of a north-central Kansas home destroyed by flames overnight.
The Salina Journal reports the volunteer fire department in Solomon was called to the scene around 4 a.m. Tuesday. Neighbors said the house was fully engulfed as fire trucks approached.
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.
Solomon is located about 15 miles northeast of Salina.
