IRENE, S.D. (AP) - Authorities have identified a man who died in a house fire near Irene earlier this month.

The Yankton County Sheriff’s Office says the body of 59-year-old Dean Gilbertson was found in the rubble of the early morning fire on May 14.

The house was destroyed in the blaze, and authorities used medical records to identify the body. Gilbertson owned the home and was the only occupant.

Investigators are not sure if they will be able to determine the cause of the fire.
