JASPER, Ala. (AP) — A second person has died as a result of a flash fire at a car dealership in Alabama.

The Walker County Coroner’s Office tells news media that 20-year-old Javan Robinson died from his injuries Thursday afternoon at University of Alabama Hospital.

Jasper police Lt. David Mize previously said the fire started the afternoon of June 12 at the customer service center of the Carl Cannon Chevrolet Cadillac Buick GMC dealership. Robinson was one of four who were injured in the fire and were hospitalized in critical condition. The next day, 39-year-old Jake Jennings died. A fifth victim suffered minor injuries.

The state fire marshal is still investigating the cause of the blaze.
