A St. Paul motor home fire killed one person and injured another late Saturday night.

ST PAUL, Minn. — St. Paul fire officials say one person is dead and another injured after a motor home fire.

According to the St. Paul Fire Department, crews arrived around 10:30 p.m. Saturday and found fire and smoke pouring from the front of the vehicle.

A witness said that one person was still inside, and when firefighters extinguished the fire and searched the motor home, they found one victim.

While that person died, another person escaped with minor injuries.

Authorities say the cause of the fire is "presumed to be a mechanical failure" and accidental.

The Ramsey County Medical Examiner is expected to release results of the autopsy early next week. This was the third fire death in St. Paul this year.
