MASON CITY, Iowa (AP) - Family members are grieving for the 3-year-old Iowa boy who died in a house fire over the weekend in Mason City.

Three-year-old Vicente Gonzalez was found in a bedroom of his home after the fire was extinguished on Saturday night.

The boy’s father, Jesse Gonzalez, says Vincente loved spending time outdoors and helping out whenever he could. For instance, he would often grab his toy lawnmower to help whenever dad mowed the lawn.

Mason City Assistant Fire Marshal Tom Wollner says the extensive damage in the home made it difficult to determine a cause. Firefighters didn’t find any working smoke detectors in the home.
