A third person has died from injuries suffered when a controlled burn went awry at a southwestern Nebraska farm.

Published reports reveal 37-year-old Anthony Meguire died Sunday at a Lincoln hospital.

The Nebraska Fire Marshal's Office has said the April 28 fire eight miles northwest of Trenton began as a controlled burn to clear cattle-grazing land, but winds sent the fire out of control.

Forty-six-year-old Theresa Schnoor was killed in the fire. Forty-year-old Robert Seybold died May 18.

All three victims had lived in Trenton.
