flamesLAKE LOS ANGELES, CA – Los Angeles County sheriff’s detectives believe a woman in her 70s died after falling into a fire pit.

The unidentified woman’s burned body was discovered by her roommate around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday. An autopsy will be performed to determine the exact cause of the woman’s death, so there’s a glimmer of hope that she died before falling into the flames.

We have reported on a handful of fire pit related deaths over the last decade, including one from earlier this year, and an incident where a baby died after being dropped into one.

But none of them come close to being as horrific as the poor bastard we reported on five years ago. That’s when a 45-year-old man was with family preparing for a New Year’s block party and had dug a 3-foot deep fire pit to roast a pig.

The man somehow fell face-first into the fire pit and became wedged. When his family where unable to pull him out, they steamed his ass by using a garden hose to try and extinguish the flames. He was pronounced dead at the scene after firefighters arrived.
