Clark County Fire investigators and Metro police are investigating the discovery of a 58-year-old woman's body found inside a burning trailer near Alexander and El Capitan Way.
Las Vegas fire spokesman Tim Szymanski says firefighters found the body in the small trailer after dousing flames about 4:20 a.m. Tuesday.
The small towing-style trailer was parked behind a house on Hickam Avenue near El Capitan Way and Craig Road.
The cause of the fire wasn't immediately known but fire officials say it may have been caused by smoking or a space heater. Family members told investigators that the woman often went to the trailer to watch television or smoke a cigarette.
