Man found dead in burned car near I-70


FREDERICK, Md. - Efforts were continuing to learn the identity of a man found dead inside a burning car on Harmony Road at Interstate 70 at 1:19 p.m. Tuesday.

That passer-by was unable to assist the man because of the extreme heat of the fire, deputies said.

The cause of the fire is also under investigation.
