A fire at an Anne Arundel trailer park Wednesday morning killed one person and destroyed a double-wide mobile home, fire officials said.

Firefighters responded to a call at 8:25 a.m. for a dwelling fire in the first block of Zona Street, in the Parkway Village mobile home park in Maryland City. The blaze took 40 firefighters from four departments 45 minutes to bring it under control, officials said.

Firefighters found the victim, who was pronounced dead at the scene and has not been identified, after the fire had been put out, officials said. No one else was hurt.

Officials said the fire caused an estimated $150,000 in damage and firefighters are continuing to investigate its cause.
