— Investigators on Monday were trying to determine the cause of two fires that started within hours of each other Sunday in the same mobile home park.

The first fire started at about noon Sunday at a trailer on Bluetick Drive. Flames then engulfed a vacant trailer two doors down, authorities said.

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.
