Firefighters find man's body in B.R. mobile home

BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) - Authorities say an unidentified man's body was recovered from a Baton Rouge mobile home after it was engulfed in flames.

The Advocate reports that the man's body was found inside the home after firefighters extinguished the fire early Monday. The cause of the blaze remained under investigation.

Firefighters spotted the fire as they responded to another blaze that investigators suspect was triggered by an illegal methamphetamine lab in an apartment.

Two suspects - 34-year-old Joseph Garcia and 32-year-old Pietra Brocato - were arrested on arson charges after firefighters extinguished the flames.

A third suspect was taken to a hospital to be treated for burns that were described as severe.
