A Jerome man has died in a fire that destroyed a trailer house.
Fire Chief Tom Hughes says the fire early Tuesday claimed the life of Mike O'Conner. Hughes didn't know O'Conner's age, but described him as an older gentleman.
Firefighters were called shortly before 3:30 a.m. Tuesday. Hughes says the older trailer house was partially collapsed when firefighters arrived.
Hughes says O'Conner was the only person in the trailer.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
