Body re­cov­ered from Skye croft

The Oban Times - - News -

A BODY has been dis­cov­ered fol­low­ing a fire in north Skye.

Emer­gency ser­vices at­tended a croft house in Kil­muir af­ter a blaze broke out on Box­ing Day, but the dam­age was so se­vere that po­lice and fire of­fi­cers were un­able to en­ter the build­ing un­til it could be con­firmed as struc­turally safe.

The iden­tity of the de­ceased had not been iden­ti­fied when

The Oban Times went to press. A po­lice spokesman said: ‘An ex­am­i­na­tion of the premises has since taken place and po­lice can con­firm that sadly the re­mains of a per­son were dis­cov­ered within the house. Enquiries re­main on­go­ing at this time to con­firm the iden­tity of the de­ceased.

‘ The in­ci­dent is not be­ing treated as sus­pi­cious. A re­port will be sub­mit­ted to the Procu­ra­tor Fis­cal.’
