Body Found in Fire Identified 18 Sep 12

The Stearns County Sheriff’s Office has identified the man who died Tuesday in an early morning fire in Paynesville Township as Scott Allen Vogelpohl.

The 47-year-old Vogelpohl was found dead inside a mobile home at 19503-293rd Ave. A passing motorist called authorities at about 6:01 a.m. to report the fire.

Sheriff John Sanner says Paynesville firefighters found the mobile home engulfed when they arrived. Vogelpohl’s body was found inside after the flames had been extinguished.

Sanner says Vogelpohl’s death does not appear to be suspicious.

The state fire marshal’s office was working with investigators to try to determine the cause of the fire.

Vogelpohl body was sent to the Ramsey County Medical Examiner’s Office for an autopsy.
