Firefighters discovered a body while battling a structure fire in Old Town Victorville early Thursday morning. San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department spokeswoman Cindy Bachman told the Daily Press that the fire was reported at approximately 2:28 a.m. in the 15200 block of Tracy Street. The fire was in a commercial building on the southwest corner of Tracy and Seventh streets that was boarded up and appeared to be abandoned, Bachman said. “Upon entry into the building, they found a body inside,” Bachman said. County Fire personnel knocked down the blaze and the Sheriff’s Bomb/Arson Unit was requested to assist with the investigation. The cause of the fire is still unknown.
