BISBEE - A toddler has died in a mobile home fire south of Bisbee. Capt. George Castillo with the Bisbee Fire Department says a man was watching his two young grandsons Wednesday afternoon when a fire broke out.

Castillo says the man got one of the boys out but that the 18-month-old re-entered the trailer, apparently following his grandfather when the man went back in to find the other boy.

Castillo says firefighters found the body of the 18-month-old in the living room of the gutted home.

The man and his other grandson were able to escape.

The cause of the fire is under investigation but Castillo said arson is not suspected.
