For the first time since Tuesday's deadly shootout between fugitive ex-cop Christopher Jordan Dorner and authorities, the media has been able to access the charred remnants of the 80-year-old cabin in which the suspect was barricaded and ultimately died.

It took several hours for authorities with the San Bernardino County Sheriff's Department to be able to approach the smoldering cabin Tuesday night, after a fire caused by tear gas "burners" and stored ammunition likely brought on site by Dorner took the rental cabin in the Seven Oaks area outside of Big Bear down to the ground. Inside the found the remains later identified as Dorner, the former Los Angeles Police Department officer who was out for revenge and is suspected of taking four lives in his violent pursuit to "clear his name."

Here are some photos of the cabin site today.
