A 65-year-old man has died from injuries he suffered in an early-morning North Highlands house fire.

Jeremiah Dudley suffered 3rd-degree burns while trying to escape his heat- and flame-filled home in the 3900 block of Eddy Place. A neighbor tried to extinguish the fire with a garden hose before firefighters arrived.

Rescue workers got Dudley out, and he was taken to LSU Health Shreveport, where he later died.

Fire investigators confirm the fire originated on the stove top, but the exact cause remains under investigation.
