ANDOVER (AP) - Authorities have recovered a body from the rubble of an apartment fire in northeastern South Dakota.

The South Dakota attorney general's office said Saturday that local police confirmed that a body was found in the apartment complex.

The fire was reported about 1:30 a.m. Friday at the complex in Andover.

The Aberdeen News reports a spokeswoman for the attorney general's office would not comment on whether the victim was killed by the fire, but said law enforcement officers do not feel there is a threat to public safety.

Day County officials say the four-unit apartment building is a total loss.
