TULSA, Oklahoma - A second person injured in a Tulsa apartment fire linked to a methamphetamine lab has died.

Maria Martinez's family says the 39-year-old died Friday at Hillcrest Medical Center from burns suffered in the March 10 blaze.

Another man, 35-year-old Armando Nunez, died shortly after the fire that destroyed eight units at the Royal Arms Apartments.

Firefighters say the blaze started when a meth lab blew up on 1 of the units. No charges have been filed in the case.

Another man and woman injured in the fire remain hospitalized in critical condition.
