Unidentified human remains have been located at the scene of a fire that destroyed a home in Badger on the weekend.

Sprague RCMP responded to the blaze around 6:05 a.m. on Saturday morning. The Pine Avenue home was fully engulfed in flames when they arrived, police said in a release on Monday afternoon.

Fire crews responded from the RM of Piney fire department but were unable to save the structure.
