Mobile home fire a potential bomb.

West Palm Beach, FL (WFLX) In a mobile home fire overnight in suburban West Palm, fire fighters say they've never seen anything like it before.

It happened at Plantation Mobile Home park, investigators arrived to find the place in flames. Inside, a man shot to death.

Investigators think it was a suicide. But the story doesn't end there. It could have been a catastrophe for firefighters.

The man had the gates leading to the mobile home chained. He had 25 gallons of gasoline spread throughout the home and three propane tanks open and a gas stove turned on. It was very difficult for firefighters to even get into the home.
