Body found after fire at Ohio mobile home park

SOUTH VIENNA, Ohio (AP) — A sheriff's office says one person was found dead in the kitchen area of a trailer that caught fire at an Ohio mobile home park.

The Clark County Sheriff's Office says firefighters responding to 911 calls didn't see or hear anyone and couldn't enter the home because it was engulfed in flames Thursday night. The fire ignited a neighboring trailer at the park near South Vienna, about 35 miles west of Columbus.

The body was found after firefighters put out the blaze.

The cause of the fire was under investigation. A neighbor tells the Springfield News-Sun ( ) the kitchen of the home had caught fire a few months ago.

Authorities said they weren't releasing the victim's name until the person was positively identified and relatives were alerted.
