A man was found dead inside a motorhome parked along a Chula Vista street and police were investigating Monday to determine how he died.

Officers conducting a welfare check on the man, who was said to be unresponsive, forced their way into the motorhome parked the 500 block of C Street near Broadway and found his body shortly after 8:30 p.m. Sunday, according to a Chula Vista Police statement. He was pronounced dead at the scene.

Smoke from a small fire inside the home that likely smoldered from lack of oxygen was also spotted, police said.

Detectives launched an investigation into the suspicious death and the cause of the fire. They asked anyone with additional information to call police at (619) 691-5151.
