Two Bodies Discovered After Creswell House Fire
Human remains have been found in what's left of a rural Creswell home destroyed by fire last Wednesday. Sergeant Carrie Carver is with the Lane County Sheriff's office.
Carver: "Since the fire we have been out there sifting through debris and it's taken a little bit of time but we were able to recover two bodies. The bodies have yet to be identified though. The missing persons report that we put out on the 16th (July) for Mr. Dennis Michael Kelley and Mr. Carl Rob McFarland still stands. We are still looking for those two individuals."
The lane county medical examiner's office continues to work on identifying the victims. Carver says the intense heat and the fact that a two-story house was leveled, makes it difficult to determine who died and what caused the fire. Investigations continue.
Right after the fire, the missing men's 1982 Ford F-150 pickup could not be located. Carver says it isn't a "prime piece of the case right now."
