Two mobile homes were damaged, though not "severely," in the fire that broke out around 3 p.m. across from the Islip Middle School, she said.

Krut said Islip fire marshals are handling the investigation.

The victim's identity was not released.

The Islip Fire Department was joined by firefighters from East Islip, Islip Terrace and Bay Shore at the scene.
