LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A man died in a fire while working in the woods Tuesday. 

It happened in the Pine Knob area of Grayson County. The coroner says that's where 60-year-old James Woodcock was tearing down an old trailer, making a pile of lumber that he set on fire.

But it caught the area around it on fire, as well as the woods, a storage building and a camper.

Woodcock tried to put out the fire, but his clothes ignited. 

His body was found by the Caneyville Fire Department.
