A man has died from his injuries after he was pulled from a burning home in Overland Park.

The fire was reported Saturday morning. When fire crews arrived, the home was consumed with heavy smoke. They found the victim inside with critical burns.

The man was taken to a hospital where he later died. His identity has not been released.

The Overland Park Fire Department says in a release the fire apparently started after smoking materials were carelessly discarded.
