VALLEY STREAM, NY (WPIX) — Officials found two bodies inside a burning car in a Long Island parking garage late Sunday.

Firefighters made the discovery after extinguishing the car fire in the Sears parking garage at the Green Acres Mall in Valley Stream. The mall was closed at the time.

It was initially believed that there was just one body in the car, but officials later discovered a second set of remains.

Police have not been able to identify the bodies. The people were so badly burned, officials cannot even determine gender, although police believe one of the victims is a man and the other is a woman.

It is not yet clear how the victims died.
