Middleton man dies in Danvers car fire

A Middleton man died after a car fire in Danvers early Tuesday morning, officials said.

The fire was reported as a vehicle crash and explosion shortly after 3 a.m., said Danvers Police Lieutenant Robert Bettencourt. When firefighters arrived at the parking lot of the DoubleTree Hotel on Ferncroft Road, they found a car fire with no sign of a crash, Bettencourt said.

A 45-year-old man was pulled from the vehicle and flown to a Boston-area hospital, said Carrie Kimball Monahan, spokeswoman for Essex District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett. He died en route to the hospital, she said.

No foul play is suspected, Kimball Monahan said.


The incident is under investigation by the Essex district attorney’s office.
