PUEBLO, Colo. (AP) A badly burned body that was found after a grass fire near the Pueblo airport has been identified.

The Pueblo Chieftain reports 52-year-old Dusty Clark, a homeless man who had been living in the area for a while, was found dead Jan. 15 in a makeshift campsite with a campfire and tent. His death has been ruled an accident.

Firefighters found the body while doing a follow-up check on a grass fire they extinguished two days earlier.

The body was so badly burned it couldn't be immediately identified.
