BALTIMORE (AP) - Officials say a volunteer firefighter injured in a three-alarm blaze in Reisterstown last week has died.

Twenty-four-year-old Gene Kirchner of the Reisterstown Volunteer Fire Co. died Thursday at Shock Trauma in Baltimore. He had been carried, unconscious, from the April 24 fire in a Victorian-style home.

A resident of the home, 58-year-old Steven Stark, died shortly after being pulled from the blaze.

Baltimore County officials say that there was no sign of foul play in the fire, but the cause remains under investigation.
