The fire that destroyed a cabin where a fugitive former police officer was believed to be holed-up was not set intentionally, San Bernardino County Sheriff John McMahon said.
He added that authorities believe 33-year-old ex-LAPD officer Christopher Dorner died in the cabin but said a coroner's investigators had not yet formally identified the remains found there.
