1 Adult, 1 Child Killed in Fire at Mobile Home Near Tampa

TAMPA, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say firefighters found an adult and a child dead inside a burning mobile home near Tampa.

Hillsborough County Fire Rescue crews were called to the home around 11 p.m. Wednesday.

A sheriff’s office news release says crews quickly extinguished the fire and found the victims inside the home.

Officials say a deputy was treated for smoke inhalation and minor burns to his hands. He was treated and released at a hospital.

The medical examiner’s office is working to identify the victims so next of kin can be notified.

No further details were immediately available.
