PINELLAS COUNTY, Fla. (WFLA) – Pinellas authorities are investigating a mobile home fire that resulted in a man’s death.

Around 2 p.m. Saturday, multiple fire units responded to the 7400 block of 46th Ave N. after neighbors reported seeing thick black smoke and flames coming from a mobile home.

Once the fire was extinguished, firefighters recovered the body of 41-year-old Randy Reed inside of a bathroom doorway. Investigators believe the fire started in one of the bedrooms.

Authorities say Reed lived in the home with his mother, who was not at home when the fire broke out. The fire does not appear to be suspicious in nature, according to officials.

An investigation into the fire is ongoing.
