WOODS CROSS, Utah -- A man who was in critical condition following a house fire in Woods Cross Monday night has died, officials confirmed Tuesday morning.

Chief Jeff Bassett of the South Davis Metro Fire Department confirmed Tuesday morning a man injured in the fire has died.

The fire occurred near 1300 S. 1100 W in Woods Cross and crews were first dispatched just before 9 p.m.

When units arrived at the scene, the home was under "heavy fire conditions," Bassett said. He said neighbors reported that there was a possibility that someone was inside the home.

The individual inside the home was located, and taken to the hospital in critical condition. That man later died. His identity has not yet been relased.

Bassett said it was unknown how long the fire was burning prior to crews' arrival.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
