BANGOR, Maine (AP) - A woman who dialed 911 to report a car fire that led to the discovery of three bodies in Bangor, Maine, says the flames were so intense that it was sometimes difficult to tell what was burning.
Radio announcer Kat Walls says she kept her distance because of pops and booms coming from the burning car early Monday. She says she learned only after arriving at work that bodies had been inside the car.
The state's deputy chief medical examiner is on the scene in the parking lot of a business called Automatic Distributors to begin the process of removing and identifying the bodies.
Bangor police and the state fire marshal's office are investigating. Sgt. Paul Edwards says police are checking surveillance video from Automatic Distributors.
