Authorities in northeastern Iowa say the body of a woman was found in a motor home that burned overnight.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier says crews were called to the fire on a farmstead near Oelwein around 1:55 a.m. Thursday and found the motor home engulfed in flames. After extinguishing the fire, firefighters found the woman's body inside. Her name has not yet been released pending notification of her relatives.

Officials say the cause of the fire hasn't been determined and is under investigation by the Iowa Fire Marshal Division.
