Officials in Pennsylvania say a man died while using a tractor to collect firewood.

Emergency responders in Crawford County told the Erie Times-News that Doug Brown was cutting firewood in Rockdale Township -- which is about 100 miles north of Pittsburgh -- shortly before 4 p.m. Sunday.

Chief Kevin Orr of the Mill Village volunteer fire department says Brown was using the tractor to pull on a tree when a limb fell and struck him.

He was pronounced dead at the scene by Coroner Scott Schell.

No one else was hurt.
