    One person was killed Monday morning in a fire inside a motor home parked in San Jose, a fire department spokesman said, Monday, April 7, 2014.

    One person was killed Monday morning in a fire inside a motor home parked near the offices of the Franklin-McKinley School District in San Jose, a fire department spokesman said.

    Firefighters received a report of the fire in the 600 block of Wool Creek Drive at 10:01 a.m. and had the blaze under control by 10:36 a.m., San Jose fire spokesman Capt. Cleo Doss said.

    One victim died in the fire, which is being investigated by both the fire department and San Jose police, Doss said.

    There was no immediate information about the victim, Doss said.

    Firefighters do not yet know what caused the motor home to catch fire, he said.

    The vehicle was parked to the side of the road not far from the school district offices at 645 Wool Creek Road, east of Senter Road, Doss said.

    A hazardous materials crew from the fire department was called after fuel was seen leaking into a nearby storm drain, but the fuel did not ignite, Doss said.
