SAN DIEGO (CNS) - US Border Patrol agents on Sunday found a body in the burn area of a small brush fire that scorched part of Otay Mountain late Saturday.

Firefighters did an air drop on the blaze, Baggs said.

By morning, the fire was out, and Border Patrol agents in the area found a dead body in Copper Canyon about 12 hours after the fire was first reported, around 11:30 a.m. Sunday, Border Patrol agent Eduardo Olmos said.

Authorities weren't immediately able to provide any information on the victim's identity, age or gender.
