Badly burned body found at Rancho Cucamonga grass fire

Firefighters knocking down a grass fire in a Rancho Cucamonga field Wednesday found a badly burned body amid the ashes.

The body is believed to be that of a male, but further identification was pending an investigation by homicide detectives, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff-Coroner Department.

Investigators were told by people that a homeless man had been living in the field.

Anyone with information is asked to call detectives at (909) 387-3589.
