Scene examination of Northland fatal fire continues

Police are carrying out a scene examination where the fatal fire occurred in Mangamuka early yesterday morning.

The scene is proving difficult to process as police need to make parts of the scene safe before continuing with the examination. The fire destroyed the house, but a number of items have been located.

Police believe that there was only one occupant at the address at the time and work continues to identify the person who died in the fire and the circumstances surrounding the incident.
