A 70-year-old man was killed early Thursday morning when his mobile home caught fire.

According to a press release from the Madison County, Illinois, Coroner, the fire happened on the 5200 block of Chain of Rocks Road in Granite City, Illinois.

Sheriff's Deputies were called to the home just after midnight, and when they arrived, the mobile home was fully engulfed in flames.

After the fire was extinguished by the Mitchell Fire Department, the body of John Beckovich was found.
