Crawfordville, FL - A 58-year-old Crawfordville man died in a camper trailer fire reported by a witness at 9:19 a.m. Friday, Nov. 16 in Crawfordville, according to Wakulla County Sheriff Donnie Crum. Witnesses reported the trailer engulfed in flames.
WCSO investigators arrived at 9:26 a.m. and discovered the burned remains of Louis Felipe Jordan in what was left of the camper trailer. The trailer was located behind a home at 88 Sam Smith Circle in northeastern Wakulla County.
Wakulla County firefighters and volunteer firefighters from Wakulla Station and Crawfordville responded to the blaze and put out the camper fire. There was no other damage to nearby structures. The Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) and State Fire Marshal were called to the scene to assist with the investigation.
Preliminary findings indicated that the fire may have been electrical in nature and the death does not appear to be suspicious. The 1970s era trailer was destroyed by the blaze.
State officials and WCSO deputies and detectives are still working to determine the exact point of origin of the fire as the investigation continues. This is the first case of an individual dying in a Wakulla County residential fire in approximately two years.
