A Provo woman is dead following a fire in a mobile home park Saturday morning.
Darlene Boyd, 48, was pronounced dead at the scene of the fire from injuries suffered when she attempted to go back into the burning home, 1375 W. 500 North, No. 94, said Provo Police Sgt. Brad Leatham.Leatham said at approximately 1 a.m., one of the residents in the mobile home awoke to fix breakfast, and opened the oven, which was filled with grease. "Evidently, I guess he was fixing a steak, opened the oven, and out came a fireball or something like it."
Flames quickly consumed the home, though the man woke up other residents to evacuate the structure, Leatham said. "For whatever reason, the victim went back in the home, and her body was found outside later."
Provo firefighters were unable to extinguish the fire before it consumed the whole home. However, crews were able to keep the fire contained to just one structure.
An investigation is continuing, but so far officials say there is nothing suspicious, Leatham said.Car hits, kills woman PROVO - A Provo woman is dead following an auto-pedestrian collision Thursday evening.

Gene Erbstoesser, associate general counsel of Ernst & Young, declined to comment on the suit, which also named Steiner Corp. of Salt Lake, General Leasing's parent company, as a defendant.
General Leasing President John G. Sinodis said Security Pacific is one of the company's three major lenders."
