The State Medical Examiner’s office in Ankeny has identified the body found at the scene of a fire Sunday afternoon in western Iowa’s Audubon County. Officials say the body is that of 46-year-old Allen Klocke of rural Audubon.
Klocke’s body was found in one of two adjacent structures on his property northeast of Audubon. The cause of the fire, which was reported Sunday at around 4:45 p.m., remains under investigation by the State Fire Marshal’s office.
Burial services for the Audubon County farmer will be held Thursday at St. Patrick’s Catholic Church in Audubon.
