One person is dead following an early-morning two-alarm fire that heavily damaged a Caldwell mobile home Thursday.

The fire was reported shortly after 7:30 a.m. in the 3100 block of Arrowhead Drive, near the Caldwell Airport.

Crews from the Caldwell, Nampa, Middleton and Star Fire Departments were called to the scene, since the fire threatened nearby mobile homes and vehicles, according to a Canyon Country dispatcher.

“We’ll likely be out here all day mopping up,” said Caldwell Fire Department Battalion Chief Bud Brayson.

The Canyon County Coroner's Office has not yet released the sex or the name of the victim. An autopsy could be conducted either Thursday afternoon or Friday morning said Canyon County Coroner Vicki DeGeus-Morris.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
