CINCINNATI (FOX19) - A body was found inside a car that caught on fire in East Price Hill, according to the Cincinnati Police Department.

Firefighters were called to the 1400 block of Neff Avenue around 2:30 p.m. Tuesday. They arrived to find the vehicle fully involved with a fire. After extinguishing the fire, crews found a deceased body inside.

The Hamilton County coroner arrived a few minutes before 4 p.m. and left about an hour later.

A death investigation is being conducted by the Criminal Investigation Section and Cincinnati Fire Arson Investigators, according to police.

The vehicle was taken away around 6 p.m.

Donald Addis lives just up the road from where the car burned. His family called 911.

“There was some smoke,” Addis said, “so I came outside, and there was a car on fire down the street.”

At that time, they didn’t hear any noises coming from the car. “No screaming, nothing,” he said.

Addis says the flames were 20-25 feet in the air.

“There was no way if someone was in there that they could have been pulled out,” he said.

FOX19 NOW is at the scene, and this story will be updated.
