MILWAUKEE - A sad update on a duplex fire in Milwaukee Thursday.

78-year-old Leo E. Roethig, who lived on the second floor, has died.

Crews were able to revive the man after they removed him from the home at 53rd and Nash, but he died at the hospital Friday.

Investigators say he had two new smoke detectors in his apartment, but they had not been opened.
