Victim in north Forsyth camper fire identified
Coroner on scene
The Forsyth County Coroner was on scene Wednesday morning, along with fire investigators.

Division Chief Jason Shivers has identified the woman who was found dead inside a burning camper trailer on Hammond Drive Wednesday morning as 52-year-old Gini Smith of Forsyth County. 

Officials say 911 dispatch had confirmed to responding firefighters that a person was trapped inside a burning structure, and the crew on the first engine responding reported being able to see a column of smoke.  When they arrived to the fire at 2600 Hammond Drive at 7:20 a.m. firefighters found a burning camper type trailer parked near a home. Division Chief Jason Shivers said firefighters had the fire out by 7:26 a.m and were inside searching for the victim saying "They knocked the fire down in short order, made entry into the camper, and unfortunately confirmed there was a deceased person inside." Officials say the home was occupied by other members of Smith's family. 

The cause of the fire remains under investigation. Hammond Drive has been re-opened to traffic, but officials say investigators will be on the scene for most of the day on Wednesday gathering evidence.
