PROSPECT, Ky. (AP) - Officials say a 61-year-old man injured in a Kentucky barn fire has died.

The Jefferson County Coroner's Office tells news outlets that 61-year-old James Arnold died Tuesday at a hospital due to complications from thermal injuries.

The fire happened in Prospect Jan. 30, and firefighters pulled Arnold from the burning barn.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
