SEATTLE -- Seattle fire officials say an elderly man rescued from a Seattle house fire has died in the hospital.
The Seattle Times reported that firefighters initially thought no one was inside the home in Seattle's Crown Hill neighborhood when they were called to a house fire on Thursday night.
But they found an 84-year-old unconscious in a bathroom and rushed him to the hospital.
Fire officials said the man was found 17 minutes after firefighters put out the fire that engulfed the front of the one-story home from basement to attic. His name has not been released.
Investigators believe the fire was caused by an electrical malfunction.
