TOWN OF NEWARK, Wis. (AP) - Authorities have recovered a body after a house fire in southern Wisconsin.

Investigators recovered the body Tuesday afternoon from the house in the Town of Newark. An autopsy is scheduled Wednesday.

Rock County sheriff’s Capt. Todd Christiansen says the cause of death was not immediately obvious. Christiansen says the medical examiner’s office will release the victim’s name after the autopsy.

Authorities have not determined what caused the fire. Christiansen tells The Janesville Gazette (https://bit.ly/2gTgxGP ) authorities aren’t sure if foul play is involved.

The single-story ranch home was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived.

Investigators have asked the public for help locating the homeowner’s pickup truck, which is missing.
