    Man dies of injuries in fighting wildfire

    (Rapid City-AP) -- A firefighter who was injured last week while
    battling a Meade County prairie fire has died.
    Dave Martin of Opal was burned while helping volunteer
    firefighters and ranchers fight the blaze. He was taken to a burn
    center in the Twin Cities.
    A spokeswoman at Region's Hospital in St. Paul says Martin died
    today.
    Meanwhile an elderly man from Red Owl is accused of setting the
    fire.
    Police have charged 71-year-old Ray Wicks with third-degree
    arson and aggravated assault.
