Two bodies have been found in a northern Nebraska mobile home fire, and authorities have arrested a man on suspicion of murder. A news release from the Nebraska State Patrol says a 911 call just after midnight Saturday reported a domestic dispute near Ewing in rural Antelope County, near the Holt County border. Another call reported a fire at a mobile home in the same area. Sheriff's deputies from both counties, state troopers and firefighters arrived to find a trailer home in flames. Authorities later found two bodies in a bedroom. The patrol says a man who escaped the fire was released after questioning, but a 33-year-old man who lived nearby was arrested in connection with the fire and two deaths. The names of those killed have not been released.
