Body found in burned Caribou Hills cabin

Posted: Tuesday, January 20, 2004

The remains believed to be those of an Anchorage man were found in the charred ruins of a Caribou Hills cabin that burned to the ground sometime Friday.

What are believed to be the remains of Jamie Rose, 37, were found in the cabin that was under construction at Caribou Lake, according to Alaska State Troopers. Next of kin have been notified.

Rose was identified as a construction worker residing in the cabin, which was being built by him and owner Larry Cabana, 44, of Homer.

Troopers are investigating the cause of the fire, but said nothing indicates the cause was anything other than accidental.

On Monday, trooper spokes-person Tim DeSpain said the time of the fire had not been determined, but on Friday a pilot reported to Federal Aviation Administration employees that he saw what appeared to be a residential fire at about 5 a.m.

A preliminary damage estimate set the loss at about $150,000. DeSpain said the structure was not insured.

Two dogs apparently also perished in the fire.
