One person has died in an overnight fire in Williamson County.

The incident was reported at a residence on Patterson Road in College Grove.

A neighbor reportedly saw flames around midnight and called the fire department.

Officials on the scene said two men had been staying in the trailer, when a mattress somehow caught fire. One of them went back into the residence but did not make it out.

When crews arrived, they were told one person was unaccounted for. The victim's body was later recovered.

His brother has identified him as 47-year-old Mark Berry.

The structure was so heavily damaged that it’s unclear if it was a mobile home or an RV.

The blaze doesn't appear suspicious, with preliminary information indicating it was accidental.

The State Fire Marshal has been notified.
