NAPA, Calif. (AP) - Authorities say a worker at a California vineyard has died in an accident involving a grape-harvesting machine.

State fire spokesman Bruce Land says emergency crews responded Monday to a report of a worker stuck inside the equipment at the Napa-area Deconinck Vineyards.

KPIX-TV reports 49-year-old Leon Marcelo Luna died at the scene.

The station says Luna's family reported he was working next to the device when a piece of his clothing got caught and pulled him into the machine.

Cal/OSHA, the state's workplace safety agency, will investigate.

Hotter temperatures, elevated fire danger, and more widespread impacts to air quality are ahead for your Friday. We'll get even hotter on Saturday, and stay hot on Sunday. A drop in temperatures and the potential for thunderstorms will return to northern California early next week.
