Human Remains Found In Mobile Home That Caught Fire

Friday afternoon update from the Brazos County sheriff’s office:

Initial results of the investigation do not show that the fire was set using an accelerant and was likely not arson.

Also, the preliminary findings from the autopsy conducted by the Travis County Medical Examiner’s Office indicate no signs of foul play.

Due to the significant burns, the positive identity of the deceased person will rely on the expert forensic comparison of dental records.

Original story:

Human remains were found in a mobile home that caught fire Thursday afternoon.

Brazos County sheriff Chris Kirk says firefighters from the South Brazos volunteer fire department and College Station responded to 9-1-1 calls around 5 p.m.

The mobile home is located in the Rolling Ridge mobile home park, located just outside the College Station city limits off Rock Prairie West near Holleman South.

The sheriff said the body was burned, but there will be an autopsy to determine the cause of death.

The person’s name has not been released.

The sheriff says there will be two investigators from the state fire marshal’s office.

No neighboring structures were threatened, according to the sheriff, due to the quick response from firefighters.
