Body Found in Mobile Home Fire

Fire destroyed a Chula Vista mobile home Saturday night. Inside, police officers found what appeared to be the body of a woman.

It has not been determined whether the body was the home's resident, a bedridden 80-year-old woman. An autopsy is pending.

The fire was reported at 9:17 p.m. at the Hacienda Mobile Estates on Anita Street, said Chula Vista police Lt. Eric Thunberg.

Firefighters arrived on scene and were able to extinguish the flames in about 10 minutes, and the body was found in the rubble, police said.

There was a report of someone leaving the house about 15 minutes before  the fire started, Thunberg said,. The fire's cause was not immediately known.
