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.
