The identification of an individual whose remains were found at a fire near Rockwood was unknown as of Friday evening.

“We do know it is a male,” said Roane County Sheriff Jack Stockton.
Stockton said DNA was taken and they would be making comparisons to try to find out who the victim is.

The victim’s body was discovered Thursday morning by emergency personnel on the scene of a house fire at 1137 Mountain View Road.

Stockton said he did not believe there were signs of foul play on the victim as of Friday.
