Body found in burned Chowchilla trailer

A body was found in a fifth-wheel trailer just outside Chowchilla after the trailer was destroyed by fire Thursday night.

Cal Fire responded about 9:30 p.m. Cal Fire spokesman Chris Christopherson said crews discovered the body as they were putting out the flames.

A man was living in the trailer on the grounds of Robert's Auto Wrecking on the 18400 block of Gordon Street, but the identity of the body has not been confirmed. Cal Fire and Madera County Sheriff's Department are investigating the fire.
