TUCSON, AZ (AP) -

Pima County Sheriff's deputies say they're trying to find out how a person ended up inside a car that was discovered burning in a northwest Tucson neighborhood.

Sheriff's spokesman deputy Tom Peine says deputies were called to a car fire at about 8 p.m. Friday and found a homeowner trying to put out a burning Mercedes-Benz sedan with a garden hose. Once fire crews arrived they put out the flames and discovered the body.

Peine says the car's owner was out of town but said a friend had been staying at his home.

Peine did not say if detectives suspect the friend was the person found in the car and the body has not been identified.

The cause of the person's death and the fire are not yet known.
