VINTON, La. (AP) - Vinton officials say a woman dead in a mobile home fire.

Fire Chief Jerry Merchant says the fire was reported shortly after 3:30 p.m. Tuesday.

Merchant says neighbors told firefighters that a woman was inside the mobile home. He says firefighters tried to enter the home, but the fire kept pushing them back.

Merchant tells the American Press (https://bit.ly/1eOXZNb ) the woman’s body was found in the area of the trailer where the most intense fire was burning.

He says the state Fire Marshal’s Office is investigating the cause of the fire.



The victim has not been identified.
