Rothbury man dies in garage fire

OTTO TWP., Mich. (WZZM) - An elderly Rothbury man is dead after a garage fire.

Oceana County deputies were called to the home of Jack Fielstra, 71, because friends and family who talk with him daily hadn't heard from him. Deputies arrived to find the home's unattached garage heavily damaged by fire. In the garage, they found Fielstra's body. Deputies believe that Fielstra was in and around the garage to blow snow.

Deputies believe the fire happened on Wednesday. Fielstra was discovered Thursday. No fire response was ever called.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
