The New London Police Department says a female is dead after a car fire Saturday morning.

It happened near Henry Street, east of N. Shawano Street in the City of New London.

When officers arrived, they found an engulfed SUV. “An Officer attempted to suppress the fire with an extinguisher and observed that the vehicle was occupied,” said a press release from the police.

The New London Fire Department arrived and extinguished the fire.

There is no positive identification of the woman, but dental records will be examined to help make the identification.
