Man severely burned in U.S. 131 grass fire dies


PLAINFIELD (WKZO) -- A Mississippi man who was severely burned in a grass fire near U.S. 131 over the weekend is dead.

Kent County Sheriff's deputies say the victim suffered burns over 100-percent of his body before passing motorists managed to put out the flames.  He was flown to Spectrum Health Butterworth Hospital but didn't survive.

Investigators think the man may have been trying to put out a small grass fire near the Post Drive exit when he was engulfed in flames.  The victim's name has not been released.
