Mobile home fire kills 1, injures another

ANCHORAGE — Anchorage authorities say one person has died and another was injured in a mobile home fire.

 

KTUU says the fire early Friday morning occurred on the 4100 block of DeBarr Road.

The Anchorage Fire Department says initial reports indicate that the trailer was almost fully engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived.

Firefighters say the injured person was taken to a local hospital.

Fire Capt. Joe Cizk says the body was found when crews entered the mobile home.

A neighbor, Nittaya Siriyod, says the trailer was occupied by a couple in their sixties. She says the man died and the woman went to Siriyod’s home looking for help.
