The Hollywood Police Department crime scene unit is investigating after a body was pulled from a car that was engulfed in flames Sunday morning.

At about 7 a.m., Hollywood Fire Rescue responded to reports of a structure fire. Once they arrived on scene, they realized the fire was coming from a parked car in the alley on the 2300 block of St. Thomas Street. Smoke was coming from the car when Fire Rescue realized there was a human body inside.

“It was fully engulfed and (there were) big flames," said one neighbor, Marlin, who saw the car on fire and called 911.

Fire Rescue later evacuated people who lived nearby.

This is an ongoing investigation.
