— Investigators have ruled two recent mobile home fires, including one in which a man died, were accidental.

The two fires started within hours of each other on June 8 in the same mobile home park.

The body of James Lee Johnson Jr. was found in the second trailer. Family members said he lived in the first trailer that burned and were unsure why he was in the second trailer.

Investigators said they found no evidence that either fire had been set.

    I agree with the 3 of you. That was my first thought too. How strange is it that he lived in the first trailer but died in the second?

    I agree with the 2 of you, it doesn't make sense. What are the odd that your house (trailer) and the house (trailer) you are visiting are going to burn down the same night?

    Does NOT make sense. And I'm with Judge Judy - if it doesn't make sense its a lie.

    He lived the in the first mobile home that burned and died in the second one that burned. Does anyone else find this odd? Both fires were accidental? They found no evidence that either fire had been set. Did they determine what cause two accidental fires hours apart in the same mobile home park?
