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.

The Office of the Fire Commissioner has said the cause of the fire and a damage estimate are not yet available.

A RCMP spokeperson confirmed that the human remains of one person were located at the scene and said police were still working on Monday afternoon to identify the deceased.
