Explosion not suspicious

Police say the death of a man whose remains were found after a house explosion in Calgary on the weekend is not suspicious.

They say the man has tentatively been identified as a resident of the home and was the sole occupant at the time of the blast.

Police and fire department investigators have determined the explosion and fire were caused by human activity, but they're not considering the man's death suspicious.

More than 25 people — some several blocks away from the house in the city's southeast — called 911 to report a loud bang about 4:20 a.m. on Sunday.

Firefighters arrived to find the house engulfed in flames that were spreading to neighbouring properties, one of which was badly damaged.

One neighbour said the home's owner, a single man, regularly goes to Thailand in the winter, but the neighbour had not seen a tenant in the house for a week or so.
