Arson investigators have been called in to find out what started a deadly fire on Ogeechee Road Saturday morning. A police officer spotted a mobile home engulfed in flames and called Southside firefighters just after eight o'clock. The officer tried to get into the building to warn the people who lived there, but he wasn't able to make his way inside.
Firefighters were unable to save a man who lived there. They found his body in the hallway. At least one other person lived there, but was not at home.
Twenty firefighters fought back the flames; however, the fire destroyed the building. Firefighters think the fire started somewhere between the kitchen and the living room.
Police and firefighters are still trying to determine what caused it. Police have not released the victim's identity until they notify his next of kin. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.
