RYE, Colo. (AP) An arson investigation into a fatal house fire in Rye continues, with authorities still looking for a handyman who lived in the home before it burned down.

Autopsies were planned Friday for the three adults found dead in the home in Pueblo County, two men and one woman.

The Pueblo Chieftain reports that the investigation at the home continues Friday. The victims haven't been named and likely won't be named until autopsies are complete.

Authorities say the handyman isn't necessarily a suspect, just unaccounted for. Fifty-nine-year-old Harry Mapps is 6 feet tall, 135 pounds and has red hair and blue eyes and may have a graying beard. He last drove a blue 2004 Chrysler Town & Country minivan with either Texas or Colorado license plates.
