Authorities identify victim of mobile home fire as Eden man; heater said to have caused fire


EDEN, Vermont — Authorities say a man who died in a fire at a mobile home was a 62-year-old Eden resident and a heater he was using caused the blaze.

The body of Thomas Lang was found Saturday morning after firefighters put out a fire in a mobile home parked about 250 yards off the road. The driveway was not plowed and firefighters had to carry hose lines by hand to the fire.

A passing motorist discovered the fire around 4:30 a.m.
