A 29-year-old man who was flown to Grady Memorial Hospital after a fire broke out in his Hall County home has died, officials said Tuesday.

The Sunday blaze at the home on Flat Creek Road in Oakwood burned Jordan Wilson, Hall County fire spokesman Casey Ramsey told The Atlanta Journal-Constitution. 

Wilson died Monday, Ramsey said.

“The victim was in close proximity to the gas container when an open flame ignited the gas fumes and caused the fire,” he said.

Wilson lived in the home with his grandmother, but she was not home at the time of the fire, according to Ramsey.
