The Grand Island Fire Department says Jason Jensen of North Loup died Wednesday morning from injuries received in the fire.
He was found unresponsive near the doorway of his apartment by officials Sunday and then life-flighted to Omaha.
The state fire marshal’s office has determined the cause of the fire to be accidental and cooking related.
A small dog also died in the fire.
