ROYAL CITY - An investigation is underway to determine the cause of an overnight house fire in Royal City that claimed the life of a 5-year-old girl.

At 3 a.m. early Sunday morning, first responders received a report of a manufactured house on fire in the Coachman Mobile Home Park, located at 133 Catalpa Avenue in Royal City, according to the Grant County Sheriff’s Office. The victim was unable to escape or may have been trapped in the home, the sheriff’s office stated.

Authorities say other occupants inside the home were able to get out. Two additional trailers were burned and a third manufactured home suffered damage from the blaze. The girl’s body is in custody of the Grant County Coroner. An autopsy to determine the cause of death will be conducted.

Officials from Fire District 10 requested crews from Fire District 3 and Adams County to relieve the firefighters involved in the initial response.
