    TULSA, Okla. - A man is dead after the car he was sleeping in caught fire.

    Firefighters said a homeless person was sleeping inside a vehicle on a lot of an auto repair shop near Admiral and I-244 around 2:30 a.m. Saturday morning when the car caught fire.

    They believe the man was using a space heater to heat the Ford Bronco.

    When fire crews arrived at the scene, they reportedly found two vehicles fully engulfed in flames.

    They said they didn't know someone was in the burning vehicles until someone on the property alerted them.

    They said that the owner had given the victim permission to sleep in the vehicle.

    Crews at the scene said the victim was unrecognizable.
