MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — An 84-year-old man is dead after authorities found his body was found under debris, two days after a Christmas Day fire at his home.

The Sawyer County Sheriff’s Office received a 911 call around 10 p.m. on Dec. 25 in reference to a house fire at 6977W Fadness Road in the town of Winter.

Authorities responded to the scene and began extinguishing the fire while investigating the whereabouts of the homeowner.

Fire crews put out the fire and continued searching the debris for the only occupant of the home, Harold Kingery.

After a nearly two-day search, Kingery was found dead under the debris in the residence on Dec. 27.

The cause of Kingery’s death and the cause of the fire are not suspicious in nature, according to officials. Both are being investigated, though early reports show the cause of the fire likely was from a heat source within the home.
