Clovis police: Firefighters find 3 dead inside outbuilding

CLOVIS, N.M. (AP) — Authorities have released the names of three people found dead inside a burned outbuilding in Clovis and identified a man who survived the fire.

Clovis police say the three who died have been identified as 54-year-old John Sandoval, 51-year-old Robert Elebario and 52-year-old Billie Jo Grabowsky.

They say 53-year-old Rogelio Hernandez survived the fire and was found in the backyard of the outbuilding by firefighters and was taken to a hospital for treatment of unspecified injuries.

It was unclear Monday if any of the four people were related or if they all lived inside the outbuilding.
Police say the fire’s cause remains under investigation.

The small detached outbuilding was fully engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived about 3 p.m. Sunday and were told that people were still inside the structure.
