Bakersfield firefighters find body in garage that burned

A man was found dead Thursday evening after a garage fire on East California Avenue, according to the Bakersfield Fire Department.

Flames consumed a converted residential garage, which was partially boarded up and had no utility connections.

Property damage was only estimated at $15,000.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

The coroner's office will determine the cause of death, which Fire Department Battalion Chief Anthony Galagaza said is considered suspicious for now.
