Firefighters were called at 5:37 p.m. Wednesday to the scene for a report of a car fire. The flames were put out quickly, but firefighters discovered a body inside the vehicle, said Cory Meyer, assistant fire chief for the Devils Lake Fire Department.

Feliciano previously lived in Jacksonville, Fla., but moved to Devils Lake, where he was residing before the incident, Knowski said. The case is under investigation and the body was sent to Grand Forks County for an autopsy, the police chief said.
