A man who was badly burned in a Yorktown fire last month died of his injuries Monday, law enforcement said.
DeWitt County Sheriff Carl Bowen confirmed on Wednesday that Chad Broll died.
Broll, 42, was badly injured in the June 20 fire. Second- and third-degree burns covered 70% of his body, Bowen said.
The fire broke out early June 20 at the White Top Motel, 436 E. Main St. Firefighters found the bungalow engulfed in flames when they responded.
Broll was transported to the Brooke Army Military Medical Center in San Antonio after the fire.
“This is extremely tragic,” Bowen said. “It’s very difficult for the family and certainly unexpected.”
Deputies with the sheriff’s office and the Texas State Fire Marshal’s Office are investigating the blaze. The fire is believed to be an accident, and no foul play is suspected, Bowen said.
