Body Found In Milford Fire

A body was found in a storage facility on the north end of Milford that caught fire Tuesday evening.

Milford fire chief Jim Carpenter says they had to force entry into the unit on fire, which was quickly extinguished. He says there was one person in the unit where the fire originated that was found deceased. No name has been released.

He says the State Fire Marshall has been called in to investigate, and the body has been taken to the state lab in Ankeny.

The Arnolds Park-Okoboji Fire Department along with the Milford Police Department, Milford Municipal Utilities and Dickinson County Emergency Management assisted on the scene.  Milford firefighters remained on the scene into the early morning hours Wednesday morning.
