      One killed in Mecosta County fire

      One person was killed in a fire at a Mecosta County trailer home.

      According to the Mecosta County Sheriff's Office, the fire happened Tuesday afternoon around 5:45 on Timber Trail in Austin Township.

      When crews arrived on the scene, they found the single-wide trailer home fully engulfed in flames as well as the covered breezeway and garage.

      The Sheriff's Office reports the trailer was occupied by one person and there was no sign of anyone coming or going.

      After the fire was extinguished, a body was found in the debris. Because of the severity of the fire, authorities could not identify the body.

      An autopsy is scheduled to determine cause of death and to identify the body.
