ABERDEEN, S.D. (AP) - Two young brothers are dead after a mobile home fire on the outskirts of Aberdeen.

The blaze occurred about 5 a.m. Tuesday. Brown County Coroner Mike Carlsen identifies the victims as 5-year-old Chesney Hoffman and his 4-year-old brother, Brendan Hoffman.

Carlsen says the two boys lived at the mobile home. The preliminary cause of death for both brothers is smoke and soot inhalation, and both bodies had significant burns.

A man in the home was taken to a hospital with unknown injuries.

The cause of the fire was not immediately determined. Local and state officials including the South Dakota State Fire Marshal’s office are investigating.
