(RENTON, WA.) -- King County Fire investigators returned to the scene this week of a fatal house fire that occurred last Friday in Renton to search for evidence of the cause and to determine if any other victims were in the remains.

What they found was another body. And this one perhaps told a larger story.

Fire Investigators were called to the house in the 16500 block of 146th Ave. SE in Renton Friday afternoon Nov. 3rd to investigate a residential fire.

During that investigation a man’s body was found outside and near the back of the house. Investigators were unable to search the interior of the house due to dangerous conditions and heat, according to a King County Sheriff's office statement.

"The King County Medical Examiner’s Office took possession of the body and later told investigators that the man had been dead for quite some time, possibly months," according to sheriff's office spokesperson Sgt. Cindi West.

Yesterday, Tuesday investigators returned to the scene and were able to safely enter the home.

"During the search investigators found the body of a man in a bedroom. It appeared the man had died as a result of the fire but the medical examiner will determine cause and manner of death after an autopsy is conducted," added Sgt. West.

Investigators learned that a 68-year old man lived in the house and his 65-year old brother had lived with him in the past but had disappeared sometime in 2015.

Based on information obtained from the medical examiner, investigators believe the man's body found in the backyard was that of the younger brother.

Investigators have determined that the fire originated in the bedroom where one of the bodies was found. The blaze has been determined to be accidental, which means the discovery of the body of the presumed vanished brother was an incidental discovery that was result of an accident.

Investigators said initial observations of the body found in the backyard did not indicate foul play however investigators said they would wait for the cause and manner of death before making a final determination.

Curiously, a missing person report had not been filed on the missing man, said Sgt. West.
