A body was found Monday in a car that caught fire apparently after getting stuck in a snowdrift on a road near Fertile, Minn., said Norman County Sheriff Jeremy Thornton.


Thornton said his department and the state fire marshal's office are investigating the incident, but that no evidence suggests foul play.

Authorities are waiting to confirm the victim's identity through an autopsy before releasing the victim's name, he said.
