ST. CLOUD, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say an 11-year-old boy was killed in a Florida mobile home fire.

The Orlando Sentinel reports that fire crews responded Wednesday morning to the Golden Grove mobile home park in St. Cloud.

Police say the home was fully engulfed in flames when firefighters and police officers arrived. Other family members had been home when the fire started but escaped. The boy didn’t make it out.

Police say one person from the home and a good Samaritan trying to help were hospitalized for burns and smoke inhalation.

The mobile home was destroyed.

The fire’s cause remains under investigation.
