PIPESTONE TOWNSHIP, Mich. (WOOD) — A man has died after a barn caught fire in Berrien County early Sunday morning, authorities said.

The Berrien County Sheriff’s Department and several local fire departments were called to the scene in Pipestone Township on Clawson Road near Black Lake Road around 12:10 a.m.

Deputies say the barn was not close to the residence on the property, but a person called 911 saying that a family member may be inside of it.

When authorities arrived, they found the barn fully engulfed by flames. They also said the barn partially collapsed. The barn had an area used as a home wood working shop.

After the fire was extinguished, 43-year-old Berrien County resident Dustin Daily was found among the fire remains.

Initial investigation could not determine the cause of death or how the fire started. An autopsy is scheduled to be conducted at a later date.

This investigation is ongoing and new developments will be sent to the Berrien County Prosecutor’s Office.
