SPOKANE, Wash. (AP) - A 72-year-old man has died in a fire at a north Spokane house where several veterans were living.

Jay Richardson was rushed to a hospital after his room caught fire early Wednesday morning. Assistant Spokane Fire Chief Brian Schaeffer says he died later Wednesday morning.

The Spokesman-Review reports that Richardson was one of four men living in the house and the only one sleeping upstairs.

The other residents were unharmed.

Richardson had been living on the street before moving into the house in June.

Fire investigators have not determined a cause.
