Woman Found Dead Inside Burning RV in Sun Valley

A woman was found dead Wednesday afternoon inside a burning recreational vehicle in Sun Valley.

Officers on patrol spotted the burning RV about 5:30 p.m. in the 11400 block of Tuxford Street, near the Golden State (5) Freeway, according to the Los Angeles Police Department.

They looked through a window and saw the woman inside the RV, but were unable to enter because of the heat, a police spokesman said.

Firefighters responded and found the woman dead, according to Amy Bastman of the Los Angeles Fire Department.

An Arson/Counter-Terrorism Section investigator responded to the scene, Bastman said.

The woman's cause of death will be determined by the county coroner's office, Bastman said.

Her name was not immediately available.
