2nd Body Found In Ruins Of Burned Former Wedding Chapel

LAS VEGAS (AP) — A second person's body has been found in the fenced-off ruins of a former wedding chapel that burned in January in downtown Las Vegas.

Fire chief Jeff Buchanan said the second body was found last weekend under insulation and other debris. Buchanan said arson investigators believe the person was at the chapel when the fire occurred January 12.

Authorities initially thought nobody was hurt in the fire but the body of 30-year-old Steven Travis Warren was found the next day. The cause of the fire hasn't been determined. The damage was estimated at $1 million.
