SAN DIEGO — A vegetation fire off Interstate 5 led to the discovery of a dead body Wednesday morning, the Highway California Patrol confirmed to FOX 5.
CHP says a call came in around 4:55 a.m. reporting a deceased individual was found in the area of the State Route 905 eastbound connector, near Beyer Boulevard.
The southbound I-5 ramp to eastbound SR-905 is blocked as an investigation takes place, said Caltrans. The Tacoyo Avenue off-ramp is also closed due to this investigation.
There’s no word yet on how long the ramps will be closed.
San Diego Fire-Rescue crews are no longer on the scene.
