NORTH PLATTE, Neb.-- Investigators have uncovered human remains Thursday at a burned-down building in central Nebraska.

Investigators with the Nebraska Fire Marshall, North Platte Police Department, and Lincoln County Sheriff’s Office have been sifting through a large pile of rubble at Vieyras Metal Works in North Platte after a fire on March 25th.

Authorities have been searching for 37-year-old Jerome Vieyra, who is accused of starting the fire.

North Platte Police observed him at the fire, and they saw him going deeper into the building during the fire.

An autopsy is scheduled for next week to identify the remains.

The investigation is ongoing.
