CHANUTE, Kan. (AP) -- Authorities in southeast Kansas are seeking help identifying a body found at the site of a fire in Chanute.

The fire broke out last week in a residential area of the city. The Chanute Police Department was summoned back to the scene Wednesday to investigate the possible discovery of a body.

Police say the person's identity is unknown and the body will be transported for autopsy.

The state fire marshal's office is helping determine the cause of the fire.
