Pulliam is the main glass glazier for the district. Garrett-Nelson said he was etching glass when a fire ignited, and his clothing caught fire.

"We continue to be in close touch with his family and while prayers are deeply appreciated, we would ask that they be given privacy at this difficult time.”
