ORANGE PARK, Fla. (AP) -- One person is dead following a mobile home fire in northeast Florida.

The Florida Times-Union ( http://bit.ly/1yPOaur ) reports someone called 911 around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday to report flames coming out of the home in Orange Park.

About 17 firefighters put out the fire, which had consumed much of the structure.

Once the fire was out, they found one person dead inside.

No firefighters were injured.

The state fire marshal's office is investigating.
