Firefighters find man's body inside burning Elizabeth garage; Cause of blaze not yet known


ELIZABETH, New Jersey — Firefighters have found the body of a 66-year-old man inside the burning detached garage of a northern New Jersey home.

Elizabeth officials tell ( that the man was found shortly after fire crews responded to the Florida Street home early Tuesday. He was pronounced dead at the scene a short time later, but his name has not been released.

Authorities say the fire apparently broke out in the garage around 5 a.m. and was extinguished about an hour later. But the cause of the blaze remains under investigation.
