Body of Surry woman found in burning house

The body of a Surry woman was recovered from a burned mobile home early Monday morning, according to the Maine fire marshal’s office.

Around 11 p.m. Sunday, several local fire departments responded to the Morgan Bay Road blaze after a neighbor called 911, according Sgt. Scott Richardson. When they arrived, flames had already engulfed half of the house and eventually destroyed the entire structure, he said. Crews remained on scene until 4:15 a.m.

Firefighters recovered her body from the living room, Richardson said. The medical examiner’s office is working to identify her, he said.

Investigators with the fire marshal’s office, who were still on the scene at noon Monday, said it would difficult to determine the cause of the fire because of the extensive damage, Public Safety Spokesman Steve McCausland said.
