A badly burned body was discovered after a small fire broke out in an abandoned mobile home park early Saturday in West Sacramento, police said.
Fire crews were called to the 600 block of West Capitol Avenue at 5:20 a.m. for a small fire in a vacant lot, authorities said. After extinguishing the fire, crews located the body within a roofless cement enclosure.
Sgt. Roger Kinney of the West Sacramento Police said the body was so badly burned that investigators were unable to immediately say whether it was a male or female.
Investigators are treating the death as suspicious, Kinney said.
