CENTRAL POINT, Oregon - A second person has died in a wildfire near Central Point. The body of a man was discovered Thursday inside the wildfire in southwestern Oregon.

60-year-old homeless Robert Lee Walker died near Central Point, Oregon. He lived in an encampment by the river near where the wildfire started Tuesday.

He was identified through fingerprint comparison and it's believed he died on Tuesday, the first day of the blaze.

A farmer died earlier this week in a wildfire.
