Human remains found after house fire north of Miramichi
Fire in Beaverbrook started shortly before noon Sunday
RCMP say a body was found in the remains of a house destroyed by fire in northern New Brunswick over the weekend.
The fire started shortly before noon Sunday in Beaverbrook, about 20 kilometres northwest of Miramichi, said Sgt. Brent Johnston of the New Brunswick RCMP.
"We don't believe it to be suspicious," he said.
Johnston wouldn't provide details about the human remains found in the house until an autopsy is performed.
A neighbour alerted emergency responders to the fire in the 1900 block of Beaverbrook Road.
"The house is pretty much a write-off," Johnston said.
The Fire Marshal's Office and Coroner Services are investigating.
