Mounties are investigating after human remains were found in a burned holiday trailer in northwestern Alberta.

Peace Regional RCMP says the remains were found Wednesday on Reno Road, about 40 kilometres southeast of Peace River.

Members from the RCMP’s major crimes unit and provincial fire investigators also are involved in the investigation.

An autopsy is scheduled for Friday in Edmonton “which will assist police in determining the identity of the deceased person,” RCMP said.

RCMP want to hear from anyone who may have seen the trailer on fire in the ditch or smoke in the area on Tuesday.

Officers would like to hear from anyone who may have seen or heard anything unusual or suspicious in the area between Monday and Wednesday.
