A person was found dead Sunday night inside a burning vehicle in National City.

An officer sent to the 2200 block of Tidelands Avenue near Bay Marina Drive spotted the body in the fire-engulfed vehicle shortly before 10 p.m. Sunday, a National City Police dispatcher said.

It was not immediately clear if the body was that of a man or a woman, or whether that person was killed in the fire.
