PRESCOTT, Ariz. -- Authorities in northern Arizona say another body has been found inside the rubble of a mobile home fire in the Verde Village near Prescott.

Yavapai County Sheriff's officials say the fire broke out early Saturday and two bodies originally were found.

They announced Monday that a third body now has been discovered.

Sheriff's officials say two of the victims are 72-year-old Ernest Houck and his 71-year-old sister, Judy Huntington.

The identity of the third body is being withheld until relatives can be notified.

The county's medical examiner says the cause of death for all three victims was smoke inhalation and thermal injury.

Detectives and fire investigators are working to determine the cause of the fire.
