One of the 4 people found dead following a house fire in Mikado Friday, has been identified.

Alcona County Undersheriff Matthew Perkins said an autopsy has been completed on one of the victims, identified as homeowner Dennis Paul Bernard, 67.  Bernard’s double-wide modular home went up in flames during the early morning hours Friday. 

Perkins believes Bernard’s remains were identified by tattoos on the body.

Three other victims, an adult and two children, have not yet been identified but are expected to be members of Bernard’s family.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.  Perkins said there is no indication of foul play.
