September 2, 2008

A man’s body was found in a burned car after firefighters extinguished the fire and cleared the scene.

Firefighters responded Friday to a burning Chevrolet Monte Carlo in a driveway in Barry County’s Rutland Township, about 30 miles southeast of Grand Rapids.

WOOD-TV and The Grand Rapids Press report the firefighters extinguished the blaze and left the scene. Residents of the house later called police to say there were human remains in the car.

Michigan State Police say the victim’s identity is being withheld until a positive identification can be made. An investigation is ongoing.
