BONNERS FERRY, Idaho (AP) — A body has been recovered after a house fire in North Idaho. The Boundary County sheriff’s office says the fire was reported just before 2:30 p.m. Monday at a residence northwest of Moyie Springs.
Deputies and responding firefighters found the residence fully engulfed. Chief Deputy Rich Stephens says the owner of the residence, 74-year-old William Kahn, could not be located and all indications are that he was in the house.
After the fire was controlled, officers recovered a body at 5:30 p.m. Stephens says a positive identification hasn’t been made. The cause of the fire is under investigation, but officials say there is no evidence of foul play.
