The body of a man was discovered in the ruins of a house fire in China about 10 a.m. Friday.
The remains are believed to belong to 53-year-old David Buchanan, who owned the Dutton Road home completely destroyed in the fire, according to Shannon Moss, a spokesperson for the Maine Department of Public Safety.
The remains have been taken to the Maine medical examiner’s office, where an autopsy will be conducted. An investigation is underway, although officials do not believe the fire was intentional.
Emergency first responders remained at the scene Friday afternoon for the investigation.
