One person was killed after three campers caught fire parked at a garage in Rice, Minnesota, on Friday.

The fire broke out among the campers, which were parked outside the Janski Garage at 50 Division St. N., at 9 a.m. Friday.

When officers arrived they found the three campers, which were parked next to each other, fully engulfed in flames.

People familiar with the vehicles expressed concern that there was a person known to stay in them, and that they may have been inside one of the campers when the fire started.

Rice firefighters extinguished the fire, and in a subsequent search of the campers, they found a body.
