Body found in scorched Kenai barn

By KTVA CBS 11 News 4:42 PM July 19, 2014

The body of a 29-year-old man was discovered inside a burned barn in the Kenai area Saturday afternoon, Alaska State Troopers said.

According to AST dispatch, both troopers and Central Emergency Services responded to the barn after the Soldotna Public Safety Communication Center  received a report of a structure fire just before noon. The body of Kenai resident O’Thaniel Cooper was found inside the barn once the flames were extinguished, troopers said, and the State Medical Examiner requested Cooper’s body for an autopsy.

While AST said no foul play is suspected, no details were immediately available on the circumstances surrounding the fire.
