Body found after Queens fire

A severely burned body was found after an early morning trash fire in a Queens park.

Firefighters were called to Forest Park in Woodhaven at about 5:54 a.m. After putting out the flames, they found the body.

Police had set up a crime scene around the fire scene in the woods near some tennis courts.

Authorities say it's unclear if the victim was intentionally set on fire or if he was dead prior to the fire being set.

The medical examiner is working to discover the cause of death.
