Authorities are investigating a Prim house fire in which the remains of a 48-year-old man were later discovered, the Cleburne County sheriff's office said in a statement Friday.
Shortly before 3 a.m. Thursday, the Prim Fire Department responded to a report of a fire at 2680 Prim Road, the sheriff's office said. County deputies also responded to the fire to help locate and identify the home's owner and residents.
Cleburne County Chief Deputy Alan Roberson told Arkansas Online that the walls and the roof of the house — which belonged to 54-year-old Sandy Canard — collapsed from the fire. Authorities found the remains of Randy Adcock in the home's debris several hours after the fire finished, Roberson said.
Adcock was the only resident besides Canard that lived at the home, Roberson said, adding that Canard was in Little Rock at the time the fire occurred.
It was not immediately clear how the fire started, and there is no indication of foul play at this time, he said.
"We're just trying to determine what caused [the fire], not that we believe anything sinister [occurred]," Roberson said.
