Arizona man, 57, burned in fire dies of injuries at UMC


A man who was burned in a shed fire in Bullhead City, Ariz., died Monday morning at University Medical Center.

Donald Gray, 57, was flown to Las Vegas for treatment at UMC's burn unit after the accidental fire Saturday.

Bullhead City firefighters responded to the fire at 1750 Rio Vista Drive at 6:17 a.m. Gray suffered second- and third-degree burns over 75 percent of his body, Battalion Chief Craig Stephenson said.

Investigators determined that a candle Gray was using ignited flammable materials in the shed, which he did not have permission to enter, Stephenson said.
