Las Vegas firefighters found a body in a burning vehicle Sunday afternoon in the northwest valley.
Firefighters were dispatched just after 1 p.m. to Washburn Road, west of the 215 Beltway, to a reported car accident, according to a release from the Las Vegas Fire Department.
A passerby told firefighters that someone was in the vehicle’s driver seat but that the blaze was too intense to conduct a rescue, the release said.
The vehicle was destroyed, and there was no accident, the release said.
The Metropolitan Police Department is assisting in the investigation.
