LOS ANGELES (AP) - A sheriff says his deputies did not intentionally burn down a California mountain cabin where fugitive ex-police officer Christopher Dorner is believed to have died.
San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon said Wednesday that his deputies shot pyrotechnic tear gas into the cabin and it erupted in flames.
He says the tactic was intended to drive Dorner out, but it was not their intention to set the cabin on fire.
McMahon did not say directly that the tear gas started the blaze and the cause of the fire remained unclear.
A body believed to be Dorner was discovered in the ashes of the cabin, but McMahon said authorities have not positively identified the remains.
