Phoenix fire victim identified

The man who died early today when a fire consumed his Phoenix travel trailer has been identified.

Raymond Corbin Sr., 83, and his dog, Bandit, were found in the ruins of the 8-by-15-foot trailer in the 5000 block of Colver Road.

Jackson County Fire District 5 responded to the blaze after Corbin’s daughter, who lives in a house on the same property, called 9-1-1.

“It was fully involved when we arrived at the scene,” said District 5 Capt. Frank Banfield. “It didn’t take much to extinguish it.”

“From all appearances, he died of smoke inhalation,” Banfield said.

An investigation into the cause of the fire was under way this morning.
