SALEM, Ore. (AP) - Authorities are investigating after fire crews find a body inside a burned recreational vehicle near Salem.

The Statesman Journal reports (https://stjr.nl/1q83bYj ) that firefighters had responded to a fire in Gervais on Thursday to find the RV engulfed in flames. Crews extinguished the flames, which had also spread to a nearby farm building, and found a body inside the vehicle.

A homeowner says the RV showed up on their property overnight and they didn’t know whose it was.

The Marion County Sheriff’s Office, the Oregon State Police and the State Fire Marshal are investigating the fire that authorities have deemed suspicious.

The identity of the deceased has not yet been released.
