OKLAHOMA CITY, OK – The man who was pulled from a fire at a duplex on Thursday succumbed to his injuries later that day, according to a report by KFOR.

The victim, who was pulled from the blaze in the 1200 block of North Villa just before 10:30 a.m., was taken to the hospital after firefighters at the scene performed emergency measures on him.

Despite CPR efforts and measures to counter possible cyanide poisoning from smoke inhalation, the victim, who remains unidentified at this time, died around 5 p.m.

The fire, likely caused by an electric source, also trapped a dog that was safely rescued and returned to its owner.
