ELIZABETH, N.J. (AP) - Firefighters have found the body of a 66-year-old man inside the burning detached garage of a northern New Jersey home.

Elizabeth officials tell NJ.com (https://bit.ly/1IH9jZ3) that the man was found shortly after fire crews responded to the Florida Street home early Tuesday. He was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later, but his name has not been released.

Authorities say the fire apparently broke out in the garage around 5 a.m. and was extinguished about an hour later. But the cause of the blaze remains under investigation.
