Authorities say they found four bodies in a burning mobile home in southwest Arkansas and another person was found dead inside a nearby house.

Officials say around 2:30 Thursday morning authorities in Pearcy received a report of a house fire and nearly 15 miles away, the fire department in Hot Springs received a report of a vehicle on fire.

Authorities then discovered the deaths and the truck fire were connected.

Lt. James Martin of the Garland County Sheriff's Department says the truck that caught fire was registered to one of the people found dead inside the mobile home.

Martin says investigators don't yet know the causes of death and that authorities are working to identify the bodies.
