A 42-year-old man was found dead inside a travel trailer after a fire early Wednesday morning, the Charlestown police said.

The man was identified as Eric Fahlman, who'd been living in the trailer, the police said in a press release.

The trailer was located next to a house at 10 Center Street, and police officers found it engulfed in flames when they responded to the call at about 1 a.m., the police said.

Firefighters from the Charlestown Fire Department "quickly extinguished" the fire, but Fahlman's body was found inside, according to the police.
