Ventura County Woman Found Dead In Mobile Home Following Fire

A Ventura County woman is dead following a mobile home fire.

Ventura County firefighters were called to a remote area of the Santa Susana Knolls outside of Simi Valley Wednesday afternoon by reports of a brush fire.

They found a small blaze, but also discovered a mobile home that was burning, and fully engulfed in flames. 

When they put out the fire, they found the body of a 63-year-old woman inside.  Her name hasn’t been released yet.

Firefighters are trying to determine the cause of the fire, but they say it started in the mobile home and spread to the surrounding brush.
