SEYMOUR, Conn. (WTNH) --Police and fire officials are trying to figure out how remains found at the scene of a house fire in Seymour ended up there.
The body was discovered inside a garage at the property on Davis Road and that's where investigators believe the fire started early Wednesday morning.
There's not much left of a Seymour garage.
"It sounded like a firecracker then a muffled thud sound and then I heard fire engines," said Konnie Rychalsky, a neighbor.
Neighbors on Davis Road saw the flames just before two Wednesday morning, feared for the homeowner and called 911.
"I was afraid for her life because she never goes anywhere without the car and never has any visitors," said Jim Bower, a neighbor.
"She was a great neighbor. If I was in trouble and the last time I saw her was a week ago in CVS. She said she wasn't feeling well and she was dizzy and getting medication for it," said Anna Geloso, a neighbor.
The Fire Marshal says after they put the fire out they found human remains in the ashes, while they were putting out hot spots.
"At that time we stopped and secured the scene and we had to dig through the remains in order to detail out the remains," said Paul Wetowitz, Fire Marshal.
The medical examiner is working to figure out who died.
Fire investigators are still piecing together how it sparked and neighbors still haven't spoken to the homeowner.
"It's a tragedy, it's sad, it's sad," said Geloso.
