GRAND ISLAND, Neb. (AP) - Authorities say a man injured in a Grand Island apartment fire has died.

The Grand Island Independent reports (https://bit.ly/1JqmNrC ) that 37-year-old Jason Jensen died at a Grand Island hospital Tuesday. He had been inside his Holiday Garden Townhouses apartment late Sunday night when the fire broke out.

Deputy Hall County Attorney Tara Nagel says Jensen died as a result of the fire.

Firefighters found Jensen near the doorway to his apartment shortly after 11 p.m. Sunday.

Deputy State Fire Marshal Ray Nance says the fire was kitchen-related. Grand Island fire officials say the fire was mostly contained to the kitchen area in Jensen’s apartment, but that smoke reached other apartments as well, temporarily displacing the tenants.

A dog also died in the fire.
