Coroner: Princeton Man Suffered Fatal Burns in Shed Fire
PRINCETON, Minn. (AP) - Authorities say a 61-year-old rural Princeton man died last week from fatal burns he received during a shed fire.
According to the Hennepin County medical examiner's office, Stanley J. Orton died early Thursday, about nine hours after the blaze began in the shed outside of his home. The medical examiner says the fire was an accident and Orton died from burns.
It's still unclear how the Wednesday afternoon fire started.
Orton was a truck driver in Elk River.
