A vehicle fire in Minneapolis led to a shocking discovery Sunday morning: the body of an as-yet unidentified woman.

The blaze engulfed a recreational vehicle on the city's north side around 6 a.m., according to multiple reports. 

FOX 9 says the RV was parked behind a business at 1127 West Broadway Avenue, and that firefighters found the body inside the vehicle after extinguishing the fire.

The fire was described as "fully involved," per KARE 11, but there's no word yet on what may have caused it. 

Fire Chief Bryan Tyner told the Star Tribune that there's "'nothing initially' that he's heard to suggest that the blaze is suspicious in nature."

The woman's cause of death is also not clear. BringMeTheNews has reached out to the Minneapolis Fire Department for more information.

This marks the second fire death in Minneapolis so far this year.
