BATTLE CREEK (WKZO) -- Battle Creek Police have released the name of the man who died in a freak spring-cleaning accident on Wednesday.

They say Louis Lingg had been cleaning his yard, and was burning brush at his home on Minges Road when his lawn tractor was ignited by the flames and he was killed in the resulting inferno.

Police say he apparently drove the tractor too close to the flames. He was dead at the scene.
