Authorities say a body has been found in a Pasadena home where a fire broke out earlier this week.
Pasadena police Lt. Rodney Wallace says the body was found Tuesday inside a detached garage, two days after fire broke out at the home on South San Marino Avenue.
Wallace tells the Pasadena Star News that the death is being ruled "suspicious."
Wallace says it's not clear if the person died as a result of the fire or some other cause. The person has not been identified.
Police say the body was found by a private arson investigator who went to the home to conduct a follow-up investigation.
Pasadena fire spokeswoman Lisa Derderian says firefighters searched the burned area twice on Sunday but did not find a body.
