CLAREMORE, Okla. (AP) - Oklahoma authorities say they're searching for a suspected trespasser after a burning vehicle was found near the home of country singer Garth Brooks.

Tulsa television station KOTV reports that one of Brooks' neighbors reported the fire Thursday morning. Police say the burning Chrysler SUV had been reported stolen Wednesday.

The sheriff's office says that when they responded to the fire, they saw a man running across Brooks' property. A deputy says authorities set up a perimeter around Brooks' property to try to locate the man.

It wasn't immediately known whether the man knew the property belonged to Brooks.
