(ABC 6 News) --  One person is dead following a morning house fire in rural Olmsted county just northeast of Dover.

The fire broke out around 10 a.m. Wednesday. It was called in by a passerby who saw smoke and heard some sort of explosion. 

The home off County Road 107 is at the end  of a long private driveway and not visible from the road.

Crews say it was fully engulfed when they arrived and multiple units worked to get the fire out.

"We had a person that was unaccounted for from the family that lives in that residence and later this afternoon we were able to recover a body," Olmsted County Sheriff Dave Mueller said.

The name of the person killed hasn't been released. The state fire marshals office is investigating how the fire started.
