SEVIERVILLE, Tenn. (WISH) — The search is off for remains of a 5-year-old boy presumed dead in a cabin fire that also killed an Indianapolis man.

Fire swept through a Tennessee cabin on April 12, killing 56-year-old Ricky Hudson and his 5-year-old nephew, Tyveon Temple. There was a group of 22 people visiting Tennessee together. They came from Indianapolis and Louisville, Ky.

Officials in Sevier County said they exhausted all search efforts after days of searching through fire debris.

“We offer our sincere condolences to the families of the deceased,” Bomb and Arson Director Dewey Woody said in a news release. “We will continue to focus on processing evidence and investigating the circumstances surrounding this tragedy.”
