BROOKSVILLE — Authorities are still trying to determine the identity of a person who was killed in a house fire Monday afternoon, just south of Brooksville.
The blaze started about 6 p.m. at 21423 Powell Road, Hernando County Fire Marshal Richard Tincher said. The fire destroyed about a quarter of the home and a couple of sheds.
Tincher said investigators have not determined a cause for the blaze and an identification of the victim probably won't come until they receive the dental records from the Medical Examiner's Office.
"We don't have a lot of details to give out right now," Tincher said. "There's still a lot to determine."
