The body was located in the front seat around 7:45 a.m. in the 7800 block of Denni Street in the L.A. County suburb, bordering the Orange County city La Palma, a news release from the department stated.

Homicide detectives and the Sheriff's Department's Arson and Explosives Detail were still at the scene investigating the case.

Although they haven't ruled homicide out, authorities were also investigating the possibility that it was a suicide or an accident. A gas can was found inside the car, and the fire was possibly sparked by fumes, a sheriff's official said.

The name and age of the male who died were not immediately available.

Sunday's incident happened more than a month after three bodies were found in a burning SUV about 13 miles away in Orange. A fourth death has since been linked to November's unsolved case.

Anyone with information was asked to contact the Sheriff's Department's Homicide Bureau at 323-890-5500. Anonymous tippers could call "Crime Stoppers" at 800-222-TIPS (8477), text the letters TIPLA plus your tip to CRIMES (274637), or visit .
