COTTONWOOD - Two people were killed in a Verde Village blaze Saturday.

Just before 1 a.m., fire crews from both Verde Valley Fire District and Cottonwood Fire Department were dispatched to 2340 Warriors Run for a residential fire.

When crews arrived, they found two mobile homes on fire. One was fully engulfed in smoke and flames. Additional crews were called from the Clarkdale and Sedona Fire Districts to assist, and an engine from Camp Verde was moved up to the main Verde Valley Fire Station to handle additional calls.

Several ambulances and the Verde Valley Ambulance Rehabilitation Unit from Verde Valley Ambulance responded to the scene as well.

Crews took a defensive response to prevent the fire from spreading to more neighboring structures.

One of the mobile homes was vacant at the time of the fire. Once the crews got the fire under control, it was discovered that there were two bodies inside the second mobile.

Firefighters worked until the early morning hours on Saturday to make sure the fire was fully out before investigators from the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office could move in and begin their investigation.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation at this time and the names of the deceased are being withheld until family members can be notified. For information relating to the investigation, please contact the Yavapai County Sheriff's Office.
