Tenant Still Missing Days After Prudence Island House Fire

The location of a man, who rented a house destroyed by fire on Prudence Island Tuesday, is still unknown.

The whereabouts of a man, who rented a Prudence Island house completely demolished in a fire Tuesday, is still unknown, reports The Sakonnet Times Friday afternoon. 

On Tuesday morning, Portsmouth fire crews battled a fast-moving house fire at 0151 Concord Ave. on Prudence Island. The blaze completely destroyed the single-family home on Concord Avenue, located near the west side of the island. 

Officials later announced a search for the house's tenant, Shannon Cubellis. Police were back on scene investigating on Thursday, but have not located the tenant, according to The Sakonnet Times. 

Officials also discovered a body in the remains of a house fire. The identity of the victim has not been released.

It's local news not news about some guy on TV in San Francisco.

Hi Kathleen. Thank-you for your comment and feedback. I apologize if you believed the article was suggesting any identification. The body found has not been positively identified as that of Shannon or anyone else. I can't imagine how difficult this must be for Shannon's family and friends. Please know, if there is anything I can do to help, please feel free to contact me either here or at Sandy@Patch.com.

So the fact that he grew up in Portsmouth does not mean it is local news? I'm confused but so are many on this site.
