DALLAS - A third Dallas man has died of heat related injuries. 

The Dallas County Health Department has listed "heat" as the cause of death for a 81-year-old man. 

Fred Dominguez Velasquez also suffered from cardiovascular disease. He was found dead in a bath tub in a converted garage in his home. Medical professionals are reporting his body had been there for some time.  

His death brings the total to three in the number of people reportedly who have died from heat-related deaths in the Dallas area this summer.

Early this month, the department reported that Norman Thomas, 43, and Patrick Barbec, 50, both died of hyperthermia.
