Fatal Home fire in Clearfield
Authorities investigate fatal mobile home fire in Clearfield
A Utah man died Thursday after a raging fire at a mobile home in Clearfield. The fire happened just before 8:00 p.m. Thursday night. Emergency crews were called out to the mobile home at 1285 West and 500 North. When fire crews arrived, they found the home fully engulfed in flames and one man inside unconscious.
Once the fire was out, firefighters said they took the man to a nearby softball field to transport him to the hospital by helicopter, but he was pronounced dead before being transferred.
The fire remains under investigation.
Crews say it is being called suspicious because witnesses reported hearing gunshots inside before the fire broke out.
