State Fire Marshal's office investigating fatal mobile home fire

by

MOSINEE, WI (WTAQ) - The state Fire Marshal’s office is helping investigate a mobile home fire that killed a man near Mosinee.

The blaze broke out around 7 p.m. Sunday in the Edgewood Mobile Home Park.

Marathon County sheriff’s officials said the victim was found in the rubble about three-and-a-half hours after units were called.

Sheriff’s lieutenant Greg Bean said authorities did not immediately suspect there was a person in the house. He said the blaze appeared to have started in the living room, but the cause is unknown.

The home was destroyed, and part of the roof had caved in.

Officials said a small building next to the mobile had part of its siding melted due to the intense heat from the fire.
