BOVINA, Miss. (AP) - Volunteer firefighters in Bovina east of Vicksburg made a gruesome discovery while battling a house fire.

Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said deputies were on patrol Sunday night when they noticed thick smoke several miles away. About the same time calls to 911 began coming in about a fire at a single family home.

Pace tells WLBT TV (http://bit.ly/1nn7c18 ) the body of an unidentified person was found in the bedroom of a home.

At this time it is not known if the person is male or female.

Culkin and Bovina Fire Departments responded to the blaze.

The fire remains under investigation.
