CENTRAL CITY, Neb. (AP) - A 75-year-old man has died after a fire that burned his apartment at a housing complex for senior citizens in Central City.

Police Chief Mark Hogue says 75-year-old Larry Ronnfeld Sr. died of his injuries after Monday afternoon’s fire at Bader Villa. Hogue says a lit cigarette likely started the blaze.

Ronnfeld called his son for help, and his son pulled his dad from the burning apartment after arriving. They were flown to a Lincoln hospital, where the older man died. His son was treated for smoke inhalation and released.
