Moorhead man dies while trying to save boy who was on fire

Email

MOORHEAD -- It's not yet known why Dane Tvedt died on Sunday when he saw a boy on fire in a backyard neighboring his north Moorhead home and ran to him to help.

Regardless of the cause of his death, it was tragic for Tvedt to die in the midst of trying to save another, said Lt. Tory Jacobson.

"That's a very heroic thing," Jacobson said. "Not everybody goes to danger."
