CLIFTON, N.J. (AP) - Human remains have been found at a northern New Jersey home that was damaged during a fire on New Year’s Day.

Authorities initially had said that no one was in the two-story home in Clifton when the fire broke out Friday afternoon. But the remains were discovered inside the Pershing Road home during an investigation into what started the blaze.

Authorities have not yet identified the remains and they declined further comment on the discovery, citing the ongoing investigation.

The cause of the fire also has not been determined.
