A man in his 30s was killed when he became trapped inside a massive fire at a mobile home early Thursday morning.

The flames broke out at the house on Gwenda Lea, located near Old Pearsall Road, shortly before 7 a.m.

When firefighters arrived, the house was fully engulfed in flames. An RV parked next to the mobile home was also burning. Firefighters believe the victim was trapped inside and could not escape. His body was later found after the flames were put out. The victim's identity was not released.

Two neighbors were treated at the scene for smoke inhalation.

Arson investigators at the scene tried to determine what caused the fire. They said they found candles inside the house and a generator outside, but it was unconfirmed whether those items had anything to do with the fire. No other information was released.

This is a developing story. Check back for updates as they become available.
