Fort Dodge man dies after injuries in house fire

Posted:

FORT DODGE, Iowa (AP) -- Officials say a Fort Dodge man injured in a house fire last week has died.

58-year-old Larry Parsons died on Monday at University Hospitals in Iowa City.

He was trapped in a bedroom on the second floor of his home on April 14. Firefighters couldn't reach him until they extinguished enough flames.

Two other people also were injured in the fire. They were treated at a local hospital and released.

Investigators say the fire started when someone used a lighter to look under a couch for a dropped cigarette, and the flame from the lighter ignited the couch.
