WINONA, Miss. (AP) - The Montgomery County coroner says a wildfire last month did not kill the man whose field fire went out of control.

Coroner Allan Pratt tells WCBI-TV (https://bit.ly/2fCpROx ) an autopsy shows that 63-year-old Joseph Henson died of natural causes, possibly a heart attack.

The Mississippi Forestry Commission has said Henson was burning off a field Oct. 27, and the flames quickly went out of control.
