MILWAUKEE --- The 7-year-old boy who was pulled from a house fire Saturday morning has died from his injuries.

The fire broke out around 7:45 a.m. Saturday near 10th and Morgan. The boy was found in his bedroom without a pulse. Firefighters were able to resuscitate him and he was taken to Children's Hospital for smoke inhalation. The boy has since died after his condition did not improve overnight.

Firefighters say there were no smoke detectors in the home. A relative was home at the time and was able to get out of the house safely.

Firefighters believe an electrical failure may be the cause of the fire. The fire is still under investigation.
