UPDATE: Man dies in leaf-burning accident


The Cass County Sheriff's Department says a Howard Township man has died following a leaf-burning accident over the weekend.

It happened in the 2400 block of Dick St. in Howard Twp around 3:40pm on Sunday.  Bobby Quick, 60, was flown to Kalamazoo's Bronson Hospital after police say he lost his balance and fell into a burning pile of leaves.

A passerby saw the man trying to get out of the burn pile, and called for help.  Quick passed away early Monday morning due to his injuries.
