ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) - A logger from Washington state has died after being pinned by an uprooted tree near Ketchikan.

KTVA reports (https://is.gd/ZaSfuc) the victim was identified as 51-year-old Kenneth B. Butkovich of Castle Rock, Washington.

Alaska State Troopers say he was struck and pinned by the uprooted tree Tuesday afternoon on Cleveland Peninsula in southeast Alaska.
