Body found in remains of Greene house fire

GREENE COUNTY, TN (WJHL) – Greene County Sheriff Pat Hankins tells News Channel 11 that a body was found in the remains of a house that burned down Friday.

Hankins says crews discovered a body Sunday morning around 11 a.m., two days after firefighters battled the blaze at the home on Clear Springs Road in Limestone.

Witnesses say an elderly woman lived at the home, but Hankins says the body could not be identified, and has been sent to the Quillen College of Medicine for an autopsy and identification. He wasn’t sure when they would receive those results.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation at this time.
