A second person has died following a fire that ignited inside an RV early Monday in Mills, the Natrona County Coroner’s Office announced.
The coroner’s office identified the second victim as an elderly man, who died sometime after being taken to Wyoming Medical Center. A Mills police officer had pulled him from the flaming motor home.
A woman also died after she was not able to escape the burning RV.
The coroner’s office said the victims’ identities would be released once families were notified.
The cause of death for both victims remains under investigation. Autopsies will be performed later this week.
The fire broke out sometime around 3 a.m. in the motor home, which was parked on the 4200 block of West Yellowstone in Mills.
Mills police officers and firefighters responded to the blaze. They were able to rescue the man but could not locate the woman until extinguishing the fire about a half hour later.
Authorities have not released a cause for the fire. But a Mills Fire Department spokesman said oxygen tanks exploded once the already burning fire reached them.
A firefighter and a police officer were both treated for minor injuries.
