 Firefighters from three counties were called out to this trailer on State Route 2035 in Lenox Township around 5:00 am.
    Despite foggy conditions, Monday morning -- smoke could be seen from quite a distance.
     
"We arrived at a fully involved structure that had 90-percent collapsed already. Exterior operations were started" Said Chief Trent Turner, Clifford Township Volunteer Fire Company.
Because it's a rural area -- water had to be trucked to the scene from a nearby stream.
 
"There is an engine company down there that established our water," noted Turner..
    Neighbors grew concerned that someone might have still been inside when they saw vehicles outside the home.
    A State Police fire marshal responded to the scene and discovered the body of a man in the rubble.
