A backyard renovation project turned into a crime scene Sunday, when workers discovered human remains in a backyard of a home in Santa Ana.

Homicide investigators and coroner’s officials cordoned off the residence in the 2500 block of North Hesperian, according to police spokesman Anthony Bertagna.

He said the home -- which had apparently been destroyed in a fire several years ago - was undergoing renovations and landscaping.

He said the remains were uncovered Sunday afternoon.

No further details were available.
