SCAPPOOSE, Ore. (AP) - Investigators say a man found dead in a mobile home fire in northwest Oregon apparently shot himself.

The victim’s name was not immediately released. Authorities believe he was 71.

The Columbia County sheriff’s office said it hadn’t been able to get in touch with the man’s next of kin.
