HOUSTON (AP) - Investigators are trying to identify a body found in a burned van in Houston.

Authorities say the scorched vehicle was discovered before dawn Thursday near some railroad tracks. Another driver saw the burning van and summoned the Houston Fire Department.

Police say the fire was so intense that authorities were not immediately able to determine the gender of the victim.

An autopsy has been ordered.

Further details weren’t immediately available.
