A mobile home caught fire in Stewart County on Thanksgiving Day, killing two of the people inside, the Clarksville Leaf Chronicle reports.

A teenage boy was also airlifted to a Nashville hospital as well. Three other people, an adult and two other juveniles were also treated.

The home, located in the Indian Mound community on the 3000 block of Highway 46, caught fire just after 6 a.m.

By the time crews arrived, two-thirds of the home was consumed with fire. The Leaf Chronicle reported the fire was under control in about an hour.

The state is now investigating the exact cause of the fire, but the paper reports the home was being heated by an electric heating unit and portable space heaters.

Names of the victims have yet to be released.
