Detroit — A body was found inside a car that was set ablaze Tuesday morning on Detroit's east side, police said.

The fire was reported just before 9:30 a.m. on the 12400 block of Goulburn. That's south of East McNichols and west of Gratiot.

After the fire was extinguished, a body was found in the vehicle. Police say it's too early to describe race or gender of the deceased.
