ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - Authorities say the remains of a small child have been recovered from a home that burned down in the western Alaska village of Tununak (too-NOO’-nuck).

KTUU-TV reports (https://bit.ly/1jYtJHQ ) that troopers had responded to the fire early Friday, and they initially reported that a young child had been unaccounted for.

The remains that were found in the destroyed home are being sent in for an autopsy and an identification of the child.

Details about what caused the fire have yet to be released.

Investigations in the case are ongoing.
