Investigators are still trying to piece together the cause of a fatal house fire in Otago.

Alan Charles Awanui's body was found inside a severely damaged property at Milton, south of Dunedin, which was gutted by fire during the early hours of Saturday.

"The fire service is investigating the cause of the fire and the death has been referred to the coroner," police said in a statement on Monday.
