NISLAND - A man was found dead in his burned-out mobile home in the western South Dakota town of Nisland.

Firefighters recovered the body of Gerald Streb on Tuesday afternoon. The cause of death was not immediately determined. The Rapid City Journal reported that Streb was thought to be sleeping at the time of the fire.

Another occupant of the home was away when the blaze broke out but lost all of her possessions. The fire also damaged two vehicles and destroyed a shed next to the house.

The state fire marshal will be investigating the cause.
