MERRIMAC, Wis. (AP) — Authorities say a 50-year-old man died in a car fire after his car became stuck in the snow in the front yard of a Merrimac residence.

Sauk County Sheriff's Office officials say Ricky J. Guillen, of Prairie Du Sac, had driven his 1994 Buick Park Avenue into the front yard of the residence on Cemetery Street about 5:30 p.m. Friday. Witnesses at the scene said that while Guillen was attempting to back out of the lawn, the vehicle started on fire.

Bystanders attempted to remove Guillen from the vehicle but were unsuccessful. He was pronounced dead at the scene.
