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.
