TAMPA, Fla. (AP) - Firefighters say one person was killed and another injured by a fire at a mobile home in a salvage yard near Tampa.

Hillsborough County Fire Rescue officials said in a news release that crews were called to the fire after 3 a.m. Wednesday.

They say the fire had quickly spread from the mobile home to piles of debris from the salvage yard. It took about 30 minutes to put out the blaze.

Paramedics treated one woman for minor burns to her hand. Another resident was found dead inside the home.

The cause of the fire and the death are under investigation by the county’s fire marshal.
