A man died inside his mobile home in western Wisconsin after a fire started in the home early Wednesday morning. At about 613am, the Rusk County Sheriff’s Department received a report of a structure fire in the Hawkins Trailer Court in the Village of Hawkins. The Hawkins Fire Dept responded to the scene and found a mobile home on fire. While suppressing the fire, firefighters found a body inside the mobile home. The body was identified as that of the occupant of the home – Clyde Ogle, age 57, of Hawkins.

Now, a burned out shell is all that’s left of a mobile home after the fire tore through. The Rusk County Sheriff’s department reports that foul play is not suspected. An investigation into the cause of the fire is ongoing.
