The Grand Traverse County Sheriff's Office says crews were called out to a fire around 7:30am at the Cherryland Mobile Home Park.

Once crews got the fire out, they discovered the body of 50-year-old John Norberg inside the burned home.

The fire remains under investigation, but Assistant Chief Terry Flynn says it's looking like an accidental fire.

Neighbors say at one point, flames were over 10 feet high, and blew out the front windows of Norberg's home.

9&10's Marisa McKay and photojournalist Jake Johnson were on the scene as crews started investigating this morning.
