A 72-year-old woman is dead following a mobile home fire in Somerset County.
Someone passing by discovered the blaze along Whitehaven Ferry Road Wednesday afternoon. Firefighters from Mount Vernon, Princess Anne and Allen responded. It took about one hour to bring the fire under control.
The office of the medical examiner will make a positive identification of the person who died and determine the cause of death.
