Authorities say a man suffered burns to the lower half of his body after he accidentally caught on fire while burning leaves in Michigan.
  
The Huron County sheriff’s office says 35-year-old Allen B. Fisher was burning leaves Monday afternoon near a home in Caseville Township, about 110 miles north of Detroit.
  
A sheriff’s office statement says Fisher’s overalls caught on fire. His father and a neighbor extinguished the clothing fire, but Fisher had severe burns from the waist down.
  
Fisher was taken to a local hospital and transported by air to another hospital for treatment.
