USA — An 80-year-old man suffered burns over 80 percent of his body this afternoon while apparently burning brush at his home on Padanarum Road in northern Warren County.

An ambulance from North Warren Emergency Squad was transporting the victim to a waiting helicopter at Warren County Airport in Queensbury, where he is expected to be taken to a burn unit in either Albany or Westchester.

The helicopter was headed closer to the incident scene, but was low on fuel and had to stop at the airport to refuel.
