Body found near boat landing fire identified as 30-year-old Hastings man

Firefighters discovered the remains only after getting the fire under control.

The body firefighters discovered after suppressing a blaze at a Hastings boat landing over the weekend has been identified.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner said the remains found early Saturday were those of 30-year-old Kyle David Hamiltion, a Hastings resident, according to a post from the city.

Firefighters were called to the boat landing at Jaycee Park around 1:14 a.m., where they found a wooden enclosure engulfed in flames. Once they got the blaze under control, they discovered Hamilton's body near the enclosure.

The Hennepin County Medical Examiner, which is responsible for determining a cause and manner of death, said Friday afternoon those answers are "pending further investigation."
