Burned Body Found on Street in Playa Del Rey

Friday, January 26, 2007 |

On Friday, January 26, 2007 at 2:06 PM, one Company of Los Angeles Firefighters, five Arson Investigators and one Battalion Chief Officer Command Team, a total of twelve Los Angeles Fire Department personnel under the direction of Battalion Chief Michael Reagan, responded to a Civilian Death With Fire Involvement near 8124 Tuscany Avenue in Playa Del Rey.

Responding to initial reports of a 'Rubbish Fire' from callers who smelled something burning, Firefighters arrived quickly to find a person ablaze in the street of the normally quiet residential neighborhood.

The smoldering remains of what appeared to be an adult female were quickly extinguished, and the person determined deceased.

Firefighters quickly covered the body and cordoned off the immediate area pending the arrival of Los Angeles Police and Fire Department Investigators, who will be jointly investigating the incident.

A positive identification of the woman, as well as the exact cause, time and manner of her death will be determined by Coroner's officials.
