BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) - Fire officials say a man who was rescued from a house fire in Billings has died.

The Yellowstone County coroner’s office tells The Billings Gazette (http://bit.ly/20ZWdkK) that 58-year-old Judd Patrick Roby died of smoke and soot inhalation about three hours after he was pulled out of the house.

Fire crews had responded to a report of smoke coming out of the basement of the house at about 1 p.m. Thursday. Roby lived in the basement apartment.

The fire, estimated to have caused $80,000 in damage, is believed to have started from a space heater.
