The Yuba County Sheriff's Office is trying to identify a badly burned body discovered by firefighters Sunday afternoon.

According to the Sheriff's Office, a small grass fire near Wheatland led to the grisly discovery around 4 p.m. near the railroad tracks and Rancho Road. The scene has been cornered off and Sheriff's detectives resumed the investigation this morning after shutting down for darkness last night.

Captain Ron Johnson told Action News Now that the incident is being investigated as a suspicious death and it appears as though the fire was human caused.
