A blaze broke out early Tuesday morning in a trailer northeast of Pala, killing a man who lived inside, authorities said.

The fire on Magee Road north of state Route 76 was reported around 12:20 a.m., Cal Fire spokesman Issac Sanchez said.

Firefighters responded and found a single-wide trailer fully engulfed in flames, Sanchez said.

Crews knocked down the flames in just under an hour, then searched the trailer and found a man dead inside, Sanchez said.

The age and name of the victim were not immediately available.

Investigators from the sheriff’s Bomb/Arson unit were sent to the scene, and an investigation was underway into what sparked the blaze.
