A Lewisville man in his 40s has become the fifth Denton County person to die from the flu, health department officials reported late Thursday.

The man was not vaccinated and did have underlying medical conditions, according toSarah McKinney, spokeswoman for the Denton County Health Department.
Four other people have died from flu-related causes this flu season - a 30-year-old Denton woman, an 80-year-old Highland Village woman, and a man in his 70s and a 13-year-old girl, both from Carrollton.

Most of the flu cases reported in Denton County are the H1N1 strain, known as swine flu.
