Firefighters responded to a fire at a garage at a home in the 2600 block of East Park Lane (map), Anaheim police and fire Lt. Eric Trapp said.

Flames were located at a detached garage, and it took 20 firefighters about 20 minutes to extinguish the blaze.

Witnesses told KTLA they had heard someone screaming, "where is my father," early in the morning.

Once a knockdown was declared, firefighters found a man's body in the garage, which had been converted into living quarters.

He appeared to be in his 40s or 50s.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, Trapp said.
