Firefighters did an air drop on the blaze, Baggs said.
By morning, the fire was out, and Border Patrol agents in the area found a dead body in Copper Canyon about 12 hours after the fire was first reported, around 11:30 a.m. Sunday, Border Patrol agent Eduardo Olmos said.
Authorities weren't immediately able to provide any information on the victim's identity, age or gender.
