An excerpt from the article 39 facts about Dyatlov Pass incident

We learn from it that at a distance of about 1.5 kilometers from the tent down the slope there was a tall Siberian pine, under which a bonfire had been lit.

This was also the place where the first two corpses-Yuri Doroshenko and Georgi Yuri Krivonishchenko-were found.

Some testimonies recorded in the prosecution files indicate that a large amount of brushwood was accumulated around the bonfire, but for unknown reasons, it was not added to the bonfire. The bonfire itself burned for about an hour and a half.

The corpse of Igor Dyatlov was found 300 meters from the forest border, the corpse of Rustem Slobodin was found 480 meters away, and Zinaida Kolmogorova was found 630 meters away. All three corpses were located in a straight line between the Siberian pine and the tent. Perhaps each of them tried to return to the tent.

The map also points to the ravine where the corpses of the other four expedition participants - Ludmila Dubinina, Alexander Kolevatov, Nikolai Thibeaux-Brignolle, and Semyon Zolotaryov-were discovered on May 4, 1959.
