At 11:30am today Forestry and Fire Rescue personnel responded to a small woods fire that was spotted in the 3400 block of SR 21 south of Middleburg. Upon entering the wooded area they discovered it was a car that was on fire. These personnel extinguished the fire and then discovered a person’s body in the car. The CCSO was notified at 12:30pm about the discovery of the body, and CCSO deputies and detectives responded to the scene.

At this time, this incident is considered a death investigation. We are not yet able to divulge if the victim is a male or female, or the exact type of car or the exact location of the body inside the vehicle. SR 21 remains open (Blanding Blvd.).
