HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) — A man was found dead inside a burning trailer in north Houston overnight, according to fire officials.
Houston firefighters responded to a fire at the Shady Oak Village mobile home park at 5711 Yale St. around 2:40 a.m.
Video from the scene shows flames and smoke rising from the roof of the charred trailer home.
Firefighters made a fast attack and got the fire under control quickly. When they went inside the trailer home, they found a man dead just inside the door.
