VACAVILLE — Solano County sheriff’s investigators were still trying Thursday to identity of the person whose burned body was found by firefighters early Wednesday after they knocked down a fire at a nursery on Pleasants Valley Road.

“We are still processing everything from the scene, trying to determine what happened there,” said Solano County Sheriff’s Department spokesman Deputy Daryl Snedeker.

All of the employees of the Mercier Grapevines nursery are accounted for and investigators are checking every venue, such as missing person reports. No age, ethnicity or gender was released from the Sheriff’s Office. Investigators have also not released any information on what caused the fire or where it started.

Firefighters responded to the fire a little after 3 a.m. Wednesday at 6760 Pleasants Valley Road to find a structure described as a tractor shed, stacks of plastic bins and several pallets burning. The 8-year-old nursery exports grapevines.
