Do you know where exactly the grass was dying, relative to where the generator was sitting? Was it under the generator head, or under the engine? My guess would be hot air blowing off the machine is "cooking" the grass.
You could run it again briefly, let it warm up, and see where it has hot air blowing down. If you can identify the source, maybe you could make a little heat shield or something to help protect the grass.
My tractor will sometimes brown the grass if I leave it running/idling in 1 spot for a while. My assumption is it's due to the hot muffler.
