SUNNYVALE (KRON) — Two people who had been listed as missing after a fire in a mobile home at a senior living community in Sunnyvale are now confirmed to be dead.
Sunnyvale firefighters say they recovered the bodies of an adult man and an adult woman inside the trailer at the Cape Cod Village on Borregas Avenue Highway 101 and Highway 237.
Authorities had listed the two as missing immediately following the fire which fully engulfed the home in the senior living community. Another adult man, reportedly the dead couple’s son, managed to escape the blaze.
“I opened the front door and saw the flames, I live down the street I saw the flames shooting up way above the trees,” neighbor Kathy Love tells KRON 4’s Mike Pelton. “I ran out of the house to come down to see whose house it was.”
Fire crews say they will likely be on the scene throughout much of the day Thursday.
