A 19-year-old Eckville man is dead following a mobile home fire north of Eckville early Sunday morning.

Officials say the cause of the fire was not suspicious.

Fire crews from Eckville and Bentley responded to a fire call around 8 a.m. to find a mobile home fully engulfed.

Sylvan Lake RCMP Sgt. Michelle Boutin said four male friends were in the home at the time of the fire and three managed to escape.
