The North Side man who was injured in a fire at his home died Friday, a spokesman for the Allegheny County Medical Examiner's Office said.

Ronnie Mickle, 62, died at 1:37 p.m. in the burn unit of UPMC Mercy, Uptown, where he was taken following the fire that erupted Thursday night along Osgood Street in Fineview, the spokesman said. An autopsy is scheduled Saturday.

Pittsburgh firefighters were called to the home shortly before 10 p.m. and pulled Mickle from the basement of the two-story brick structure.

The flames were limited to the basement, Assistant Fire Chief Thomas Cook said.
