The OPP have identified a man whose remains were found after a house fire along County Road 21 during the weekend as 76-year-old Minden Hills resident Bruce Harris.

The fire happened near Jay Lake  on the evening of Saturday June 11. Members of the Minden Hills fire department discovered human remains at the site as they battled the blaze. The house was destroyed.

A subsequent investigation by the Ontario fire marshal's office and the OPP's crime and forensics units concluded the death was not suspicious.

"The investigation has concluded and the cause of death has been determined to be not suspicious" a June 16 release from the OPP reads.
