BELLEVUE, Neb. (AP) Two people, including a child, have died in a mobile home fire in Bellevue south of Omaha.

An 8-year-old boy and his grandmother were killed in the 3 a.m. Saturday fire.

The news station says firefighters arrived on the scene to find flames shooting from the home.

The family told the station that the boy and his grandmother were found in the front of the living room of the trailer.

The boy's father, 3-year-old sister and 15-year-old brother were reportedly also in the home and escaped the fire.

Investigators have not said what caused the fire, although the family believes it may have started near a space heater.
