One victim was found dead after a recent fire in north Forsyth County.

According to Forsyth County Fire Department Div. Chief Jason Shivers, the body of Brittany Best, 36, was found at the scene of a fire in a mobile home on Watson Road on Wednesday, Feb. 1. 

Shivers said all indications are that Best was alone and firefighters were first notified the home was on fire before a second call said there was a person in the home. 

He said firefighters responded to the fully involved home at about 6 a.m., which he said was easily contained after firefighters responded, and cleared the scene by 1 p.m. 

Officials said both the fire department and the Forsyth County Sheriff’s Office are investigating the incident. 

The fire is the fourth recent fire in the north Forsyth area after a couple and a family were displaced in separate fires and a suspect was accused of starting a fire following a domestic incident.
