Clare County Barn Burns Down, House Damaged

Posted: Updated:

Firefighters believe burning trash is behind a barn and house fire in Clare County.

The fire chief says the man who lives in the home was burning debris in Frost Township this morning when some of it got loose.

The barn was gone by the time crews got there and the house was still on fire.

The man suffers from breathing problems. He collapsed after running to get a hose and was pulled to safety.

Family members say the man had oxygen tanks in the part of the house that burned. It is not clear if any of those ignited.
