At least one person was killed in a two-structure fire north of Alvord early Thursday morning.

Wise County Fire Marshal Chuck Beard said the remains of one person were found, but another person believed to be in one of the structures was unaccounted for.

Fire departments from Alvord, Chico, Sunset and Decatur were dispatched to the fire in the 200 block of County Road around 12:49 a.m. Units arrived on scene and reported a travel trailer fully engulfed and flames through the back part of a single-wide mobile home.

Officials believe the fire started in the travel trailer and spread to the mobile home.

The occupant of the mobile home escaped without serious injury.

The names of the victims were not released at the scene. The cause of the fire is under investigation.

More information will be published as it becomes available.
