    1miŠ2010 Yahoo! Inc.A camper fire in south Provo on Friday morning left one man dead.

    Jed Gressman, 41, of American Fork, was already dead when firefighters arrived at a burning camper at 2170 S. Mountain Vista Lane. People driving on south State Street toward Springville called police at 11:23 a.m. after seeing smoke.

    Deputy Fire Chief Gary Jolley said crews started putting the fire out, discovered the man's body inside and immediately pulled him out to check his vital signs. They then continued extinguishing the fire but tried to minimize the additional damage so investigators could determine what had happened.

    Police and fire crews are investigating the cause of the fire but have no reason to suspect this was arson. Gressman most likely died of smoke inhalation; the medical examiner's office will do an autopsy.

    "We just haven't really got any hard evidence either way," Jolley said.

    He said Gressman was friends with a man who worked for the owner of the home at 2170 S. Mountain Vista Lane, and the friend told him he could spend the night in the camper.
