Authorities have released the name of a resident who was killed when a mobile home was destroyed by fire in the northwest Arizona community of Mohave Valley last week. The Mohave County Sheriff’s office identified the victim as Jay Dee Harp, 57.
Agency spokeswoman Trish Carter said Harp’s body was found in the kitchen area of the home in the 10000 block of Driftwood Circle. An adult female who was found dead in a hallway of the home has not yet been positively identified.
Mohave Valley Fire department Fire Marshal Don Gibson said the late Friday night fire originated in the living room. He said the cause remains under investigation and autopsies are pending.
