Body found inside burning Mastic Beach car

Firefighters say they discovered a body inside a burning car in Mastic Beach Tuesday.

Lynne Kule, who lives next door to a Mastic Beach home that caught fire, says she saw flames spread from one car to another Tuesday afternoon before the fire engulfed the home. According to Kule, the woman who lived in the apartment was found dead in her car.

Kule says the woman often fought with her boyfriend and called the police for help.

Investigators have yet to determine the cause of the fire.
