Deadly Mobile Home Fire Investigated as Possible Arson

Authorities say a fire in a mobile home in central Pennsylvania that claimed the life of a man and slightly injured a firefighter is being investigated as a possible arson.

Fire crews in Lancaster County were called to the East Cocalico Township mobile home park at about 8:15 p.m. Friday.

An official with Reamstown Fire Company said flames were coming from all four sides of the home by the time crews arrived.

Authorities said a man was found dead in the bedroom. They said the victim's identity had not yet been established and an autopsy was planned to determine the cause of death.

A firefighter injured when the blaze flashed up as fire crews were trying to enter through a bedroom window was treated at a hospital and then released.
