Body found in grass fire near 405 Freeway in Mission Hills
The fire began shortly after 10:30 a.m. near the southbound freeway at Devonshire Street. After firefighters put it out, two other fires cropped up on the northbound side and were believed to have been started by sparks from the first one.
It took nearly 80 firefighters to douse the blazes, which may have started at a homeless encampment, fire officials said.
After the fires were extinguished, firefighters found the body of an adult, but no information was available on the victim's gender or age.
