The body of an elderly man was found after fire broke out at a Wilson County home. 

The incident happened shortly before noon Monday at a mobile home on New Town Road, near Watertown Middle School. 

The fire was about 50 percent involved when crews arrived on the scene, but they were able to knock it down quickly. 

The body of a 73-year-old man was found inside the home. Authorities have not released his identity. 

Officials said the residence did use a wood-burning stove for heat, but they aren't sure if that was the cause of the fire.
