An investigation is underway after a body was found in the charred wreckage of a vehicle in Los Feliz Thursday afternoon.
The Los Angeles Fire Department responded to the 2000 block of N. Edgemont Street in Los Feliz around 2:15 p.m. for a report of three vehicles that were on fire.
Firefighters upgraded the response upon discovering flames had spread to the adjacent two-story home. They began battling the blaze and eventually knocked it down, extinguishing all three vehicles, as well as the home.
But during a search, a man’s body was found in one of the vehicles.
The unidentified person was declared dead at the scene, and the Fire Department has begun an investigation into what sparked the fire.
Video from Sky5 showed the charred remains of multiple cars, as well as the damage caused to the house. Firefighters were on top of the roof, which was burned through, leaving the interior of the home exposed.
The estimated amount of damage caused to the home and vehicles is unclear at this time.
The Los Angeles County Coroner’s Office will determine the man’s identity, as well as the cause and manner of his death.
No additional details have been released at this time.
