UPDATED: 3 dead in southern Colorado house fire

RYE — Colorado authorities are searching for a handyman who lived at a home where three people were found dead Wednesday after a fire.

Pueblo County sheriff’s office spokeswoman Lisa Shorter says 59-year-old Harry Mapps had been living at the home in rural Rye until last week.

At least three adults were found dead in the burning home, and the blaze has been labeled suspicious. Shorter said investigators haven’t ruled out another victim inside the home.

Arson investigators with the sheriff’s department and Colorado Bureau of Investigations searched the home today to determine the cause and origin of the fire and to remove the bodies.

Shorter said Mapps drove a blue Chrysler Town and Country minivan with Texas license plates.
