    Arson experts are being called in to help investigate how a woman confined to a wheelchair was apparently killed in a roaring fire that engulfed her San Jose mobile home.

    Firefighters responded late Thursday to reports of a fire with a possible trapped person at West Winds mobile home park in the 200 block of El Bosque Drive in North San Jose.  

    Neighbors said the victim was approximately 50-years-old, had been paralyzed by a stroke. Neighbors also expressed some concerns to San Jose fire investigators, saying the on-site caretaker was gone when the fire started.

    "Neighbors said they had seen little, small fires starting inside the home," a man said, "next thing you know, it takes minutes, seconds for everything to catch on and instantly, everything just caught on fire."
