Moorhead man dies day after house fire

A man who was injured in a Moorhead house fire earlier this week has died, city officials said Thursday.

The victim, 62-year-old Robert Blue, of Moorhead, died Wednesday at a Fargo, N.D., hospital. Moorhead police are investigating the cause of death.

The fire was reported by someone walking by the house shortly after noon Tuesday. Police evacuated a day care provider and several children who were in the house. They were not injured.

The home is only used as a day care and no one lives there, police said. The state fire marshal is investigating the cause of the fire, which appears to have started in a second-floor kitchen.
