A 55-year-old man died Wednesday in a fire at a mobile home in Enfield, N.S.

The fire at a trailer off Highway 102 was reported just after 5 a.m.

Emergency workers found the body of Stephen Barter inside the home.

A neighbour says he tried to kick in the door while his wife dialled 911, the CBC's Phonse Jessome reported.

Firefighters say flames were shooting out of the trailer when they arrived.

"There was fire coming out of all four sides," said Enfield Fire Chief Francis Ledwidge.

Ledwidge said there was no one else inside the trailer.

The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.
