Remains found in house fire are not human


Homer - The Vermilion County coroner says, the remains found on Saturday were not human.


An anthropologist said, the remains are probably that of a small animal.


Homer firefighters were called to a home in the 7000 block of North 200 East Road, around 10:30 Friday night.


Firefighters had a tough time putting out the fire because of high winds and frigid temperatures. No word yet if the bones found belong to the person living at the home.


The investigation is on going.
