Remains found at the site of a house fire in Woodstock are not those of a human, police say.
Firefighters and police officers were called to the Kent Street home around 9:30 a.m. Wednesday.
They arrived to find a fire consuming part of the home, as well as another structure on the property, and a man trying to put the flames out with a garden hose.
As crews worked to extinguish the fire, police say, they also found “what appeared to be skeletal remains” in a fire pit.
Investigators later determined that the remains did not belong to a human.
No injuries were reported from the fire.
