    The charred remains of an unidentified woman were discovered Saturday morning inside a Florida portable toilet, police said.

    St. Johns County Fire and Rescue responded to a port-a-potty on fire at around 7:30 a.m. Saturday morning in St. Augustine, Florida, a coastal town 50 miles south of Jacksonville. After extinguishing the flames, the firefighters found human remains inside the portable toilet, the county sheriff’s office said in a statement.

    Detectives believe the remains belong to a white woman and don't have more information at this time.

    The incident occurred on the property of a home construction site, where neighbors say they heard a loud boom at 6:30 a.m. Saturday, according to NBC affiliate First Coast News.
