Man Found Dead in Burning Trailer

The Greene County Daily World reports a Linton man died in a trailer fire Saturday night.

Police say 62-year-old Fred Saunders Junior apparently died from smoke inhalation.

Linton firefighters were called to 158 SE 5th Street around 8:30 PM.

When they broke open the door to the trailer, they found Saunders lying on the floor.

The fire appeared to have started around a couch.

Authorities say Saunders may have fallen asleep with a cigarette in his hand.
