KA'ANAPALI, Hawaii -

An elderly man pulled from a burning building in Ka'anapali has died.

The medical examiner identified the man as Jurgen Vahrenkamp.

The 84-year old was badly burned last Wednesday in a fire on Keka'a Drive.

He was flown to Honolulu for medical treatment, but succumbed to his injuries Saturday.

Maui fire officials said the cause of the fire was undetermined but probably an accident.
