A structure fire in Arroyo Grande left one person dead Monday morning, Cal Fire confirmed.

Firefighters responded to a structure fire on the 1100 block of Mesa View Drive about 5:30 a.m., according to Cal Fire spokesman Chris Elms.

The structure, described as an RV-style trailer, was fully engulfed when firefighters arrived, Elms said. One person, who was inside the trailer, died.

The trailer was in the back of the property, which had multiple structures on it including sheds, according to Elms.

Firefighters were able to “knock down” the fire by about 6 a.m., and the fire was contained to the structure, Elms said.

The deceased person was living in the trailer, Elms said, but details on the person’s identity have not yet been released.

The cause of the fire is currently under investigation, Elms said, and the coroner is on scene.
