SENECA, S.C. (AP) - Authorities are investigating the deaths of three people following separate mobile home fires in Oconee County.

Oconee County Fire Chief Charles King says firefighters responded to the first of two fires about 9:15 p.m. Sunday.

The remains of two people were found after firefighters extinguished the flames that destroyed a home near Walhalla.

Coroner Karl Addis says they are believed to be 49-year-old Charlie Brooks and 53-year-old Alfonso Contreras. An autopsy is planned for Tuesday.

King says firefighters responded to another home near the Oconee County airport around midnight.

Addis identified remains found there as 49-year-old Mark Land, who was living there.
