An 88-year-old south suburban man died Sunday night of injuries suffered more than a week earlier in a fire at his Chicago Heights home.
Firefighters responded about 8 a.m. Oct. 14 to Tyree Miller Sr.’s home in the 300 block of West 16th Street in Chicago Heights, authorities said.
Miller was taken to Loyola University Medical Center in Maywood, where he was pronounced dead at 8:01 p.m. Sunday, according to the Cook County medical examiner’s office.
An autopsy Monday found he died of burn injuries and his death was ruled an accident.
A Chicago Heights city spokeswoman could not immediately be reached for comment.
