Three dead in Del Valle fire

One man in his 20s along with two others have died in a Del Valle mobile home fire Thursday morning, according to authorities.

Fire crews responded to the fire located at 8301 Linden Road at 5:53 a.m. and found the man, who died on the scene. Later officials confirmed to KVUE that two others had also died in the fire.

Travis County Fire Rescue told KVUE that the home is located off the road, so it took crews quite some time to get to the fire. When they arrived, no fire hydrants could be located, so there was no water on the scene. Once the fire was put out, half of the mobile home was burned.

No cause has been determined yet. Travis County Fire Marshals and the Travis County Sheriff's Department are investigating the fire.

This developing story will update as more information becomes available.
