ROCHESTER, N.Y. -- The great-grandmother of Tyler Doohan, the 9-year-old boy who died saving others in a Penfield, N.Y., fire earlier this month, died early Friday morning, according to her son.

Joseph Breyette, 43, of Holley, N.Y., confirmed that his mother, Barbara Beach, 66, who was seriously burned in the Jan. 20 fire, died about 5 a.m. at Strong Memorial Hospital.

The fire tore through a mobile home in the East Avenue Manufactured Home Community in Penfield. Tyler is credited with waking six family members, including Barbara Beach, who all escaped the burning trailer. Fire investigators believe Tyler died while trying to save his disabled uncle.

The funeral for the three other family members was held Wednesday.
