SHERIDAN TOWNSHP, Mich. (AP) - Authorities say a 93-year-old man who was severely burned after a grass fire that he set in Huron County apparently got out of control has died.

The Huron County sheriff’s department says David W. Nutt died at a hospital following the Sunday fire in Sheridan Township, about 100 miles north of Detroit.

The department says he was found on the ground with burns over 30 percent of his body after apparently burning grass near his home.

Foul play isn’t suspected in the death.

On Saturday, authorities say 95-year-old Robert Harry Greenaway died in a brush fire in Benzie County. According to investigators, he was likely burning garbage in a barrel when he spilled kerosene on himself. The fire spread to about 2 acres of brush.
