VAN NUYS – The bodies of two men were found after firefighters put out a blaze to a 26-foot travel trailer, authorities said.

One man’s body was discovered after firefighters put out the blaze in the 16900 block of Sherman Way shortly after receiving the 5:12 a.m. call, said Bryan Humphrey, spokesman for the Los Angeles Fire Department.

The second man was located hours later under hundreds of pounds of debris during the department’s investigation, Humphrey said.

Two deceased dogs were also found.

“The second man was clutching a dog,” Humphrey said.

Damage to the trailer and a nearby building is estimated at $40,000, Humphrey said. The cause of the fire was under investigation.

It appeared the trailer had been parked at the site behind a liquor store for some time and had been using power from the business through the trailer’s electrical hook-ups, investigators said.
