BARRON, Wis. (AP) - Sheriff’s deputies say an elderly man has died in a field fire in Barron County.

Authorities say the man’s son called 911 Sunday afternoon to report a controlled burn had spread out of control south of Barron. Eighty-year-old Donald Burling, of Dallas, was monitoring the burn when it spread. Officials say he died as he tried to get control of the fire.
