The 110th Precinct announced Sunday that a medical examiner deemed the death of an unidentified male non-suspicious following a vehicle Friday in Flushing.

The precinct tweeted that the death was likely caused from smoke inhalation that rendered the individual unconscious and resulted in his burning.

The unidentified male was found dead after FDNY personnel extinguished a vehicle fire last Friday at Northern Boulevard and Prince Street in Flushing, police said.

At approximately 8:03 a.m. Friday morning, police from the 110th Precinct responded to a 911 call of a fire at the location.

Upon extinguishment, FDNY personnel discovered the unidentified male — possibly in his 50s — unconscious and responsive in a vehicle, police said.

Authorities pronounced the male deceased on scene, police said.
