Fresno worker killed while trimming trees identified

The identity of the man killed while trimming walnut trees in northwest Fresno last week has been identified.

Jim Andree, 79, was electrocuted on July 27 while using a piece of machinery that came in contact with electrical wires that burst into flames. He died at the scene. Two groundskeepers from the San Joaquin Country Club saw the flames and put the fire out with a garden hose.

The accident took place just before noon on a piece of property known as Rancho Rio Del Sol, on Valentine Avenue near the country club.
