At about 6 p.m. local time, the cabin was engulfed in flames, as an American television audience watched live images beamed from news choppers.
The piercing sound of exploding ammunition was heard coming from inside the flaming cabin.
By 11 p.m. local time, authorities entered the smoldering remnants of the cabin to find charred human remains.
Is the body Dorner's? Probably. But police are taking no chances. They are waiting for an autopsy to make an announcement of the final determination.
