Officials with the Roachdale Fire Department responded to a residence fire on the 300 block of East Railroad Street around 6 a.m.
Fire crews say a mobile home had caught fire.
A firefighter who leaves nearby was alerted to the flames by a neighbor. When fire crews arrived they found the home completely engulfed in flames.
Firefighters were able to get the fire under control within 30 minutes.
On scene firefighters found three people, two women and one man, inside the mobile home. The three individuals were pronounced dead on scene.

The fire is still under investigation. Foul play is not suspected at this time, according to the Putnam County Sheriff's Department.
Officials believe there were no working smoke detectors inside of the mobile home.

The victims names have not yet been released.
