COSTA MESA, Calif. (KABC) -- A person and dog were found dead inside a minivan in a residential area in Costa Mesa on Wednesday afternoon, authorities said.
The bodies were discovered in the 2600 block of Riverside Drive. A hazmat team from the Orange County Fire Authority was conducting an investigation.
The identity of the victim or the circumstances behind their deaths was not known. However, investigators said the deaths did not appear to be a result of foul play.
