MARSHALL, TX (KLTV) -
A Marshall man died in a Dallas hospital early Friday morning after fire officials say a flammable liquid he was using to light a wood stove set him on fire.
Marshall Fire Department Battalion Chief Jack Hanson says the 22-year-old, whose name has not been released, was trying to build a fire in a wood stove in a shop building in the 3800 block of South Washington Avenue in Marshall. He was using what is believed to be a liquid paint thinner to try to get the fire burning when the fire flashed into the five-gallon container, blowing out the bottom and engulfing him in flames.
The shop was on fire when crews arrived on the scene.
The victim was transported to Good Shepherd Medical Center in Marshall before he was driven to Parkland Hospital in Dallas where he died.
