ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) — A man and two pets have died in an early morning fire in Alaska that destroyed a motor home, an official said.

Firefighters found the man and two animals dead inside the motor home in Anchorage, The Anchorage Daily News reported Sunday.

The victim was not immediately identified. His body was sent to the State Medical Examiner Office in Anchorage to be identified.
