BUFFALO CITY, Wis. (AP) - Authorities in western Wisconsin have identified two family members who died in a mobile home fire.

Thirty-year-old Douglas Shawley and 2-year-old Genevieve Shawley died when fire swept their home in the Buffalo County community of Buffalo City on Tuesday.

A Buffalo County sheriff’s deputy arrived within minutes of the fire call and found the back half of the mobile home engulfed in flames. The deputy reported a small explosion that could have been a propane tank. Deputies evacuated surrounding homes until the fire department arrived.
