DETROIT (AP) — Authorities say a burning body has been found in a field in Detroit.

Police on patrol spotted a fire early Tuesday on the city’s west side. Detroit Deputy Fire Commissioner Dave Fornell tells The Detroit News that when firefighters responded the body was “the only thing burning.”

Investigators are working to confirm the identity of the body, including whether it was of a man or woman. They didn’t immediately say how the fire may have started.
