One person has died and another was injured in a motorhome fire in St. Paul Saturday evening.

The fire was reported on the 1000 block of Arundel Street at around 10:30 p.m.

A witness at the scene told responding fire crews that there was one person still inside. 

After the fire was extinguished by the St. Paul Fire Department, they found one person inside who had suffered fatal injuries.

Another person, who was able to escape the vehicle, was taken to a nearby hospital with minor injuries.

St. Paul FD continues to investigate the cause of the crash, but at this stage it's thought to have been the result of an accidental mechanical failure.

It's the third fire death in St. Paul so far this year.

It was a busy 24 hours for the department, which saw two of its firefighters injured as they battle a house fire early Saturday.
