Southern Ky. man dies of burns

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) - Officials say a southern Kentucky man is dead after suffering severe burns while trying to load a wood-burning stove.

Warren County deputy coroner John White says 80-year-old Lloyd Bryant of Bowling Green was trying to load the stove outside his home early Sunday when his clothes caught on fire. White says 90% of the man's body was burned.

White said emergency crews were called and Bryant was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead in the afternoon.

White says it appears the death of accidental and an autopsy wasn't performed.
