PENAMPANG: The identity of the man who died in a burning car and the cause of the fire are yet to be known as authorities are still probing the case.

According to district police chief, DSP Rosley Hobden, the deceased could not be identified as his remains were charred beyond recognition, and have been sent to the Queen Elizabeth Hospital for post mortem.

Relating the incident that happened at around 4.40am near Restoran Sinar Mustika in Donggongon here yesterday, he said that the police were notified of the incident by the Fire and Rescue Department (FRD).
