BERRY CREEK, Calif. - The Butte County Sheriff's Office says another person has died in the North Complex West Zone, also known as the Bear Fire.

Sheriff's officials say 54-year-old Win Naing, of Berry Creek, was burned in the fire on Sept. 8, 2020. Naing was able to drive from his home on Sandy Springs Lane to locate a firefighter, who called for help. The firefighter was then able to have Naing transported to Enloe Medical Center.

Naing was then transferred to U.C. Davis Medical Center, where he was put into a medically induced coma. He died on Wednesday, Oct. 21, 2020.

The Sheriff's Office says this brings the number of people who lost their lives in the fire to 16 and that condolences go out to family and friends of Naing and to all the families who lost loved ones in the devastating fire.
