Fire marshal: Elderly Arkansas man dies in fire

GREENLAND, Ark. (AP) - An Arkansas fire marshal says an elderly man who lived alone has been found dead after a house fire.

Washington County Fire Marshal Dennis Ledbetter tells KHOG-TV (http://bit.ly/1kqwJfd ) firefighters found the body at a residence that burned down Thursday. Authorities haven't released his name or age.

Ledbetter says fire trucks were too large to easily access the rural home. Firefighters had to use a chain saw to cut through tree branches to get water to the fire.

Neighbors told authorities that the man usually kept to himself.
