Sawyer County authorities say a man's remains were found in the debris of a burned-down house last week.

The fire on West Fadness Road in the Town of Winter was reported at about 10 p.m. on Christmas Day.  The body of the home's only occupant, 84-year-old Harold Kingery, was located in the debris two days later.

The Sheriff's Office says neither Kingery's death nor the fire were suspicious.  Authorities believe a heat source in the home started the fire.
