SHEFFIELD, Ala. (AP) - A man severely burned in a house fire has
died from his injuries.
Authorities say 49-year-old Charles Butler of Sheffield died
Monday in the burn unit of a Birmingham hospital.
Sheffield Fire Marshal Terry Lenz said Butler was burned over
much of his body in the fire at his home Sunday. Lenz said
authorities have determined a fire in a fireplace ignited carpet
and spread through the house.
Lenz said a woman, 20-year-old Brittany Brewer, escaped the
house with her son, 2-year-old Caden Brewer. They were not injured.
