MEMPHIS (AP) — Authorities say a 72-year-old man has died of heat-related causes in Memphis.

Shelby County's health department says the man's air conditioning was working but it was only blowing hot air when he was found Wednesday in his home. A fan in the home also was working, but all the windows were closed when he was found.

The department says it does not know exactly what activity caused his death, but it did say that environmental heat exposure was a likely factor.
