Fatal Fire-ID

Authorities have identified the man who's body was discovered inside a home near Dover that was engulfed in fire Wednesday morning.

KTTC television reports the Olmsted County Sheriff's Office found the body of 57-year old Donald Helgerson at 3770 Olmsted County Road 107 NE. Authorities believe he died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound. A shotgun was recovered next to the body.

Evidence has been collected and will be submitted to the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension for further testing to determine the origin and/or other cause of the fire. The sheriff's office say this evidence will help determine if the fire was intentionally set.
