Two people died early Tuesday morning in the Ellsworth mobile home fire.
The fire broke out at a mobile home on Route 1A, also known as Bangor Road, around 3:45 pm, according to Stephen McCausland, a spokesman for the Maine Department of Public Safety.
The mobile home was engulfed in flames when firefighters arrived at the scene, McCausland said.
Two bodies, believed to be male and female, were found inside, he said.
Officials are still trying to contact relatives of property owners to inform them of the fire, Sergeant. Mary MacMaster from the state fire brigade office said at the scene. The two victims have not yet been identified, but that their names might be released Tuesday night, he said.
