One person was killed and one other treated for smoke inhalation following a spectacular fire at a southwest side mobile home this morning, News Radio 1200 WOAI reports.
The dead person, a man in his thirties, was trapped inside the burning mobile home. Mobile homes become ovens during a fire.
The fire broke out on Gwenda Lea Street, which is off Old Pearsall Road. Fire crews said they could see thick smoke from Southwest Military, several blocks away, and when they arrived at the mobile home the structure was engulfed in flames.
Arson investigators are on the scene of the fire, trying to determine the cause.
