ALICE- A fire sweeps through a mobile home in Alice Friday night, killing a man inside.
Fire crews were called out to the 800 block of Beam Station Road around 8:30.
They say by the time they got there, the small metal home was swallowed by the flames.
Once the fire was put out, fire crews discovered the body of Arturo Cardona inside by the door.
Firefighters say it appears he was trying to get out, but probably collapsed because of all the smoke.
Neighbors say he lived by himself, and did not have electricity or running water.
A fire marshal has been called in from Dallas to assist Jim Wells county fire investigators to determine what sparked the fire.
