An Horry County (S.C.) Sheriff's deputy died Sunday after a two-month illness caused by smoke inhalation from an apartment fire in March.
Deputy Tim Causey, a 25-year veteran, had been hospitalized since March, when he responded to a devastating fire at the Windsor Green community in Carolina Forest.
Deputy Causey developed acute respiratory failure shortly after the fire. Doctors as Medical University of South Carolina in Charleston diagnosed him with the H1N1 virus, a strain of the influenza virus often called swine flu, and put him into a medically induced coma, reports Myrtle Beach Online.
He is survived by a wife and two daughters.
