Two bodies were found in a mobile home fire overnight in Northern Alexander County and it’s the result of arson. The mobile home is located off Pine Meadows Lane which is near Black Oak Ridge Road. Neighbors heard explosions and called 911. Sugar Loaf, Taylorsville, and Vashti Fire Departments responded shortly after 11pm.
County Fire Marshall Russell Greene said this morning “There is no question, this fire was the result of arson” but he declined to suggest the cause of the fire. The S.B.I. is assisting in the investigation at this hour.
Sheriff Bowman said this morning that there are two or three residents of the home that for now are unaccounted for. He suggested the two bodies found are a juvenile and a female but offered that “its difficult to be certain because the bodies were burned so bad.”
This is a developing story.
