The Nevada Fire Department received the call after 3 a.m. to the home on 10th Street. The structure was fully engulfed when they arrived. The fire was extinguished within a short period of time.
As firefighters sifted through the remains, a body was discovered along with a dead dog. The name of the person is being withheld until notification is made.
The state medical examiner and fire marshal have been called in to investigate.
