A man was rushed to a hospital and later died after he was pulled from a house fire in San Jose Tuesday, fire officials said.
According to the San Jose Fire Department, the incident started just after 4 p.m. at a home on Debra Way, near San Tomas Expressway.
When San Jose firefighters arrived, they found a man in a back bedroom.
Officials said the man was transported to a nearby hospital, where he later died.
Firefighters believe the fire may have started in the kitchen.
The death marked the second fatal house fire in the city this week. One person died Sunday night in a three-alarm fire at a home near San Jose City College.
