Woman Dies in Mobile Home Explosion

Posted: Updated:

OKEMOS, Mich. (WLNS) - One woman has died after a fire tore through a mobile home in Okemos Monday night. Officials are not releasing the name of the woman, but her body was spotted inside the wreckage.

It happened around 9p.m. at the Winslow Mobile Home Park on Grand River, near the well-known Spagnuolo's Restaurant.

The woman who died used an oxygen tank and was smoking a cigarette, which fire officials have ruled as the cause of the fire.

Officials also said the man liked to make his own ammunition, which Fire Chief Fred Cowper said caused the fire to accelerate and eventually explode.

Five different fire departments had to bring water to the scene since there was no hydrant near the home.

Two others nearby homes suffered minor damage. The home was a total loss.
