Arlie Hill, known as "Pooh" to his family and friends, suffered burns to more than 90% of his body when he and another firefighter rushed into a burning home in late August.

The "Prayers for Pooh" Facebook page posted numerous status updates requesting prayers for the firefighter who was reportedly fighting infections.
