DENVER – A man taken
to the hospital after a house fire in Denver on January 12 died on Saturday, according to Denver Health Medical Center.
Ralph Andrade III, 72, passed away from injuries he suffered while escaping the home. Firefighters say Andrade fell from the second-story window during the rescue.

Andrade’s son was bedridden with Multiple Sclerosis and could not escape the fire. Six people, including Andrade, were taken to the hospital.
