By Frank Gerace

A man who was rescued from his house as it burned Friday has died.

State Fire Marshal's investigators say the 57-year-old died Saturday from injuries he suffered during the fire at his house in the 1-thousand block of Providence Avenue in Brandywine Estates.

The Delaware County Medical Examiner's office is looking into the exact cause of death.

The fire started around 12:30 Friday afternoon, and did about 100-thousand dollars' damage to the house.

No word yet on a cause.
