Deadly fire: Man dies after returning to burning home in north Houston

HOUSTON, Texas (KTRK) – A man has died after returning to a burning home north of Houston, and authorities want to warn others in an effort to save lives.

The fire broke out around 2pm on Monday near the Aldine Mail Route. According to the Harris County Fire Sheriff’s Office, the 68-year-old and his wife made it out of the burning house safely, but then the man turned inside. At this point, officials aren’t sure why.

When firefighters arrived, they pulled the man out of the house and immediately performed CPR. The victim was taken to the hospital, where he later died.

“What we can tell people is, if you have a house fire and you get out, never come back inside,” said Rachel Neutzler of the Harris County Fire Sheriff’s Office. “All your possessions, they can be replaced. Unfortunately, your life cannot be saved. So it is very important that if there is a fire, get out and stay away. Call. to the fire department from a safe location.”

An autopsy will be performed to determine exactly how the man died. His identity has yet to be made public.

The Fire Police Office is investigating to determine the cause of the fire.
