A body was found Monday in a home that was destroyed by fire in the foothills of Jefferson County.

At about 1:15 a.m. Monday, deputies responded to a report of an explosion in the 8100 block of Stags Leap Trail, according to a sheriff’s office news release.

Firefighters with the Inter-Canyon Fire Protection District, and other nearby fire departments, contained the blaze to the one structure and put out the fire, which charred the residence.
