After spotting flames, the man caught the grisly sight of the mother-to-be burning at around 12.20pm.

The man called 911 and yelled for help from workers who were nearby.

The workers tried to put out the fire with a fire extinguisher.

Shortly after the discovery, firefighters rushed to the scene and extinguished the flames at 12:26 p.m.

The woman was pronounced dead at the horrifying scene by firefighters.

Lieutenant Paul Cervantes called the woman’s murder a “heinous crime”.

Police said the woman was black and in her 20s.

She was short in stature, but it was immediately apparent she was pregnant, police said.

Authorities are not sure if the woman lived in an apartment building nearby or if she was homeless.

It is also unclear whether the woman was set on fire while she was alive.

“That’s a difficult question,” added Cervantes. “We have a schedule, and that’s pretty much it.”

“We understand the gravity of any homicide investigation, but this particular one hits a very deep chord,” Cervantes said.

He added: “We will work day and night until we solve it.”

The Fresno Police Department and Fresno Fire Department are investigating the crime.
