The Waukesha Police Department was able to successfully locate a vehicle involved in a 'suspicious' fire, as well as identify the victim.

Firefighters found Dennis Michael Huelse, 63, inside a home in the 600 block of South University Drive Thursday.

In a press release put out the following day, police labeled the investigation of the house fire 'suspicious' and asked for the community's help in tracking down an orange 1969 Pontiac Firebird that was involved in the case.

Police have since located the vehicle after a citizen noticed the car in an abandoned alleyway and notified the Milwaukee Police Department. There was no damage to the vehicle.

Police are still investigating the circumstances of Huelse's death and ask that anyone who can provide information contacts Detective Tim Probst at 262-524-3814, or tprobst@waukesha-wi.gov
