LONGMONT, Colo. (AP) — Authorities say one person is dead after a fire at a mobile home in northern Colorado.

Longmont Fire Department spokeswoman Molly Cropp tells The Times-Call that neighbors reported the blaze Friday morning, and firefighters encountered heavy smoke and intense heat.

They were able to control the fire in about 20 minutes, and the victim was pronounced dead at a nearby hospital. No one else was in the home at the time.

The victim's name has not been released, and investigators have not said what caused the fire.
