One man was found dead after authorities responded to a mobile home fire in Evansville on Sunday.

Joshua Rodriguez, 28, was discovered dead at the home with fire damage to his body, according to Wayne Reynolds of the Natrona County Coroner’s Office. He was a resident of Casper and was not living at the mobile home.

A fire at a Lathrop Road mobile home was reported just about 2 p.m. and was put out within 30 minutes, said Evansville Police Chief Zach Gentile. The mobile home was the only structure damaged. An investigation is ongoing regarding the cause and origin of the fire.

An autopsy for Rodriguez is scheduled for Tuesday in Loveland, Colo., Reynolds said.
