Two bodies have been found in a northern Nebraska mobile home fire and authorities have arrested a man on suspicion of murder.

The Nebraska State Patrol says a 911 call just after midnight Saturday reported a domestic dispute east of Ewing in 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. The two bodies were found in a bedroom.

The patrol says a man who escaped the fire was released after questioning, but 33-year-old Matthew Hinrichsen, who lives nearby was arrested in connection with the fire and two deaths.

The names of those killed have not been released pending autopsy results, positive identification and notification of relatives.
