Police found a dead person after the fire in an old wooden Odda Sunday. The deceased is probably the 56-year old missing woman , police said.
The person is sent to Gades Institute for autopsy and final identification, sheriff Terje Kvalvik Hardanger confirmed to NTB.
Crime Technicians from Western police arrived Monday to Odda to assist local police and fire departments in the investigation following the fire in Eitrheimsvegen Sunday morning. It took time for technicians to investigate the fire site.
– The roof was burned and partially collapsed, so it had some safety work before we arrived, says Kvalvik.
The woman, who was at a party in the house , is said to have gone to the attic to sleep.
Five people in total were sent to hospital for checks, and two neighboring houses were evacuated because of the fire raging in the house.
There was a party in the residence onSaturday night. The residents who were in the house and got out, were four adults and a three years old child. Odda was experiencing strong winds on the night when the fire occurred.
