Officials release name of man killed in mobile home fire near Monrovia

MONROVIA — Coroner’s officials Friday released the name of a 58-year-old man found dead inside his burning mobile home over the weekend in an unincorporated county area near Monrovia.
Michael Patrick Mullins died at the scene of the fire, which was first reported about 8:45 a.m. Saturday at a mobile home park in the 2500 block of South Peck Road, Los Angeles County Department of Coroner Assistant Chief of Operations Ed Winter said.
An autopsy had been performed, however Mullins’ cause of death was deferred pending further examination, Winter said.
Neighbors described Mullins as a chef and a friendly man who largely kept to himself and maintained a close relationship with his mother and step-father. He had lived in the complex for more than five years, but had moved into the mobile home he was living in over the past few months.
Firefighters found Mullins’ badly burned body to the rear of the mobile home while extinguishing an extensive fire in the structure, Los Angeles County fire and coroner’s officials said.
The cause of the fire was being investigated by sheriff’s arson investigators, which deferred comments to the Sheriff’s Homicide Bureau, which was conducting a death investigation. The handling homicide detectives could not be reached for comment.
