A Knappa man is dead after his trailer home caught fire Thursday night.

Emergency personnel responded to the trailer, located inside Knappa Mobile Park at 42280 Lois Loop, just after 7 p.m. The fire was contained after several hours.

The body of Richard Lee Huddleston, 59, was recovered at the scene. The structure is considered a total loss.

Authorities are investigating the cause of death and the fire, but it does not appear to be suspicious, according to a Clatsop County Sheriff’s Office press release.

An autopsy has been scheduled with the Oregon State Medical Examiner’s Office.
