Woman found dead in mobile home after fire

LAS VEGAS - A 68-year-old woman moving into a mobile home was found dead inside the trailer after a fire broke out Tuesday morning.

Clark County firefighters were called to the mobile home park about 9:10 a.m. Firefighters went inside and found the woman dead in the hallway of the mobile home, said Steve La-Sky, fire department spokesman.

The woman, whose name was not released, apparently had just stopped by the mobile home and was in the process of moving in, he said.

Most of the fire damage was in the front of the mobile home with smoke and heat damage throughout, he said. An autopsy will determine what caused the woman's death.

Firefighters were able to put out the fire in a few minutes, La-Sky said.

Fire investigators were trying to determine where the fire started in the mobile home and the cause of the blaze.
