Firefighters dousing a small one-acre grass fire in the northern part of the Angeles National Forest this morning found a body among the ashes. The unidentified corpse was discovered around 7:30 a.m. about one mile east of the 5 freeway near Templin Highway. Sheriff's Deputies had very little information, but the Daily News points out that the body was burned beyond recognition: officials cannot tell if it was even a male or female.
