      Woman, 83, found dead after trailer fire in Thumb

      Authorities in Michigan's rural Thumb region say an 83-year-old woman has been found dead inside her burned mobile home.

      The fire was reported late Saturday night in Huron County's Meade Township. The site is near Bad Axe.

      Sheriff Kelly Hanson says in a news release that emergency crews found the body of Lorna Knoblock in her bedroom at the trailer home. Hanson says a passing motorist spotted the fire and told authorities.

      An autopsy is planned, and the fire remains under investigation.
