A mobile home fire in Hempstead County Wednesday afternoon claimed the life of a Shreveport man. Danny Adcock, 49, was found dead inside the burned-out home in the 5700 block of County Road 3 in the Patmos community.

Firefighters were called to the location around 1:15 p.m. when a neighbor saw flames coming from the structure. The neighbor was unable to located Adcock and the trailer was fully engulfed in flames.

Adcock was pronounced dead by Hempstead County Coroner Ben Brazzel at 2:30 p.m.

The neighbor said Adcock lived in Shreveport but would come and stay in the mobile home for extended periods from time-to-time.

Volunteer firefighters from Patmos, Spring Hill and Southeast were called to the fire which also spread to some other smaller structures and the nearby wooded area. The Arkansas Forestry Commission was also called in with a bulldozer to help stop the fire from spreading.
