Police have told Pirate FM that they do not think a fatal fire in Helston was suspicious.

It comes after crews called to a burning shed in Coronation Park on Friday night, found a body.

Detectives say they will have to be identified by their dental records.

Devon and Cornwall Police have released this statement: "At approximately 2240 hours on Friday 22nd March 2013, Police, fire and ambulance were called to a shed fire in Coronation Park, Helston.

"When the fire was extinguished a body was found in the shed.

"At this time both Police and Fire are conducting a joint investigation into the circumstances surrounding the fire."
