Lahaina man dies of fire injuries

Posted: Updated:

HONOLULU (AP) - An 84-year-old Lahaina man burned badly in a condominium fire has died.

The Medical Examiner's office says Jurgen Vahrenkamp died Saturday of injuries suffered Wednesday.

Maui fire officials say the cause of the fire in the Kaanapali Royale, a three-story residential complex, likely was accidental.

The Honolulu Star-Advertiser reports Vahrenkamp was rushed in critical condition to a Maui hospital and transferred a day later to a Honolulu hospital.

Damage to the home was estimated at $180,000
