    First-responders found two vehicles on a burning embankment on the 118 Freeway in Granada Hills early in the morning on Sunday, June 14, 2015.

    One person was found dead in a car fire that ignited brush on a 118 Freeway embankment and closed the eastbound portion of the freeway in northern Los Angeles County Sunday morning, authorities said.

    The vehicle was completely burned and its only occupant found dead when first-responders arrived to the location in Granada Hills, according to a California Highway Patrol representative.
