TUCSON, Ariz. (AP) - Authorities are investigating after a body was found in a fire inside a Tucson mobile home that was thought to be vacant.

Fire officials say the fire was reported by a mobile park resident around 6 a.m. Sunday.

Tucson fire Capt. Barrett Baker says a crew arrived and began to extinguish the fire in a double-wide mobile home.

Another crew was dispatched when the blaze spread to a second mobile home.

Baker says firefighters brought the fire under control within 20 minutes.

Crews searched the scene and found a body inside the home that initially caught fire.

Fire investigators and Tucson police are working to determine the cause of the fire and the cause of death of the body.

Baker says the mobile home was supposed to be vacant.
