A 70-year-old Seward man was discovered dead in a shed that burned down Saturday.
Seward County sheriff's deputies believe that William Peters was involved in a tractor accident, which ultimately caused the fire that was discovered shortly before 4 p.m.
In a press release, Sheriff Michael Vance said Garland Fire and Rescue was dispatched to the area of 210th Road and U.S. 34, about 5 miles east of Seward, shortly after Seward Fire and Rescue was called for mutual aid.
He said that once deputies arrived, they learned there was a man missing from the residence.
After a search, they found Peters' body in the burned building, Vance said.
The Nebraska State Fire Marshal also conducted an investigation at the scene.
