SAN DIEGO (AP) - Firefighters have found the body of a man as they put out a small fire under a San Diego freeway bridge.

The San Diego Union-Tribune reports (https://bit.ly/29i9IbP ) a homicide investigation is under way following the grim discovery in the Bay Park neighborhood Sunday morning.

Police Lt. Manny Del Toro says it’s unclear if the man was already dead at the time of the fire or if he suffered other trauma. An autopsy will determine the cause of his death and his identity.

Del Toro said witnesses saw someone run away from the area across Interstate 5 to the center divider around the time the fire was reported. He said a man was also seen carrying a gas can within two blocks of the fire.
