Authorities have said two people have been reported missing in the Marshall Fire. On Wednesday they reported that investigators discovered the remains of one adult, though it’s unclear if the remains are one of the two missing people.

The Marshall Fire started on Dec. 30 in an area, according to authorities, around the 5000 block of Eldorado Springs Drive, east of the Eldorado Springs community. The fire was propelled by winds of about 100 mph. It burned more than 6,000 acres.

An investigation into the fire’s cause is being conducted.
