LITTLESTOWN, Pa. (AP) - Authorities said a man found dead in a mobile home fire in central Pennsylvania last week died of a gunshot wound.

PennLive.com (https://bit.ly/1QGkzJu ) reports that the man hasn’t been positively identified and state police in Adams County are investigating the death.

Coroner Patricia Felix said there is no threat to the public because police believe it was an isolated case.

The body was found Thursday morning after crews were called to fight the fire in Germany Township.

Felix said a positive identification is expected later in the week with the aid of dental records. She said the time of death has also not been determined.

It was one of three fires involving a fatality in the county in a two-week period.
