KENOSHA- Crews responded to a brush fire in Kenosha and discover a woman's body.
Clem Smith has lived across the street from Kenosha's Nedweski Park for four years.
"When I heard it this morning I couldn't believe it," said Smith. "It's just unreal, I mean I let my grandkids go over there and play and everything but now I'm going to have to watch them."
A young woman's body was found around 10:30 Monday morning in the middle of burned brush near a playground.
As word of what happened hit the neighborhood, people like Wendy Wakefield showed up -- trying to get more information.
"We know all of the little kids in the neighborhood and we're just worried about what's going on," said Wakefield.
Wakefield says she's been worried about the park for a while.
"Honestly I tell my kids all the time never to walk through there," said Wakefield. "There are so many entrances and exits, it's ridiculous."
Several families of missing girls arrived at the scene, desperate for any word on whether the body found could be their loved one.
"My cousin has been missing since the 4th of July, we haven't heard from her," said Taqueisha Terrell.
A neighbor who didn't want his name released out of concern for his safety, said that he filed a police report after he saw a man in the area right before the fire started. But as questions linger, so does a community's concern.
"I was just surprised really, because nothing like this has happened before," said Clem Smith.
Members of the gang unit were also on scene, but there's no word on whether police think the incident was gang-related. They are asking anybody with information to call Crime Stoppers at (262) 656-7333.
