NEW AUBURN, Wis. (AP) -- Authorities say a New Auburn woman is dead after a trailer home fire over the weekend.

Forty-eight-year-old Sharon Nelson was killed in the fire. The blaze broke out shortly before 2:30 a.m. Sunday.

The Chippewa County Sheriff's Department says the trailer house was engulfed in flames when New Auburn firefighters arrived.

Neighbors told firefighters that Nelson likely was inside the trailer. Her body was later recovered from the living room area.

The Chippewa Herald reports the fire remains under investigation, but the sheriff's office says foul play is not suspected.
