Painter Injured in Fire Dies

A painter who was critically injured in an East Texas house fire has died from her injuries.

Friends tell KLTV 7 that Becky Chamberland passed away at Parkland Hospital. Becky had suffered wounds to over 50 percent of her body when an aerosol can she and her partner were using got too close to a gas water heater and ignited. That was at a Longview house on Tuesday.

The other painter, Jerry Gaston was also burned. His condition was upgraded to "fair", on Wednesday.
