An East Texas man died Friday night from injuries he sustained after his wheelchair got stuck in a fire earlier this week.

Bobby Prescott, a double amputee, was badly injured Tuesday when flames from a burn pile spread around him on Mixon Road, near Troup.

Prescott's family says he died at 10 p.m. at Parkland Hospital in Dallas. 

Friends say they appreciate the community's support.
