Firefighters working on Southern California wildfires have found a badly burned body in a transient camp.
The city of Carlsbad said the body was found Thursday while firefighters were checking hotspots on a fire that began a day earlier. The city says it had no information about person who died.
It appears to be the first fatality in fires throughout the San Diego region that have destroyed eight homes, an 18-unit apartment complex and two businesses.
The body was found shortly before all evacuation orders were lifted in Carlsbad, a city of 110,000 people 30 miles north of San Diego.
