FLORENCE, Ore. (AP) - One person died in a Thursday morning fire just south of Florence.

Siuslaw Valley Fire Chief Jim Langborg tells KCST radio that firefighters responded at about 3 a.m. to a mobile home completely engulfed in flames.

Langborg says a man’s body was found inside. His name has not been released.

Fire crews prevented damage to a Highway 101 motel and other nearby buildings, including an abandoned gas station.

The cause of the fire hasn’t been determined, but Langborg says he has no reason to believe it was arson.
