The fire destroyed a home in the rural municipality of Meadow Lake, close to the city, in the northwest part of the province.

The person who died in a house fire in the Meadow Lake area last week has been identified as homeowner Robert Ellenor, the RCMP says.

After the Feb. 12 fire destroyed the home, bones were discovered inside.

The Provincial Coroner's office confirmed Wednesday that the remains are those of Ellenor, 61.

He had lived alone at the house, which is in the rural municipality of Meadow Lake.

The cause of the fire hasn't been determined.
