Two bodies found in burning mobile home in Yuba County

Authorities are investigating the deaths of two people whose bodies were found Thursday afternoon in a burning mobile home in Yuba County.

The fire was reported about 2:30 p.m. at the Thunderbird Mobile Home Park in the 1500 block of North Beale Road in Linda. Firefighters found what are believed to be the bodies of two males, an adult and a juvenile, said Leslie Carbah, a spokeswoman for the Yuba County Sheriff’s Office.

The Sheriff-Coroner’s Office is handling the investigation. Carbah said autopsies were expected to be conducted Friday afternoon, but the identities of the two people probably would not be available until early next week. Neither the cause of the fire nor the cause of death has been determined.

Investigators with the Yuba County Sheriff’s Office, California Department of Forestry and Fire Protection, the state Fire Marshall’s Office and federal Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives were on scene through the night and into Friday, Carbah said.
