4th heat-related death confirmed in Wis.

MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- Wisconsin health officials have confirmed another heat-related death.

The Sauk County coroner says an 87-year-old City of Reedsburg woman was found dead in her trailer last week. The trailer apparently did not have air conditioning.

It's the fourth confirmed heat-related death in Wisconsin that happened during last week's heat wave.

The others are an 80-year-old Illinois man who died from heat-related causes while staying at his second home in Marquette County; a 65-year-old Columbia County man; and an 82-year-old Prairie du Chien woman.
