Firefighters arrived at the scene just as the car burst into flames and then discovered the body in the back seat of the car.

The car fire broke out around 6:30 a.m. Monday morning at the intersection of Intervale Avenue and Kelly Street.

Firefighters at the scene reported that the car was double-parked on the street.

After putting out the fire, the firefighter discovered the charred body.

The cause of the fire is under investigation, as is the circumstances of the person’s death.

The Toyota Camry was completely destroyed, only the hull remained.

“I was just surprised. Just surprised. Coming out like my super called me and said your car caught fire and I was so what! The fire was very bad,” said Kirk Komteye, a resident of the neighborhood NBC4.

Komteye was parked near the burned-out Toyota and his car was also damaged in the fire.

He managed to get his child’s car seat out of the flames.

Police and authorities have yet to release the name of the deceased, but those living in the neighborhood told NBC4 that the dead person is a man in his 30s who also lived in the neighborhood.

A witness also told NBC4 that they saw him get into the car when it was already on fire, but authorities have not released or confirmed any details yet.

The NYPD’s Office of the Assistant Commissioner for Public Information was contacted by The Sun for comment.
