NEW BERN, N.C. (AP) - An unidentified man has been found dead in a mobile home fire, and authorities have opened an investigation.

The Craven County Sheriff’s Office tells news outlets that firefighters were called to a home just outside of New Bern on Monday and removed a body from the charred remains of the home.

Maj. David McFadyen said investigators think the man was the only one living at the mobile home.

The State Bureau of Investigation is looking into the fire. McFadyen said while foul play isn’t expected, it is standard procedure for the SBI to investigate a fire in which someone died. The Craven County Fire Marshal’s Office is also investigating the fire.
