GRIFFITH — A man has died after being injured in a northwestern Indiana apartment fire in which four other people including two police officers also sustained injuries.
The Lake County Coroner’s Office says 47-year-old Vita Bibbs died early Thursday in a Munster hospital. His cause and manner of death are pending.
Bibbs was hospitalized early Wednesday after his unit caught fire at the Park West Apartments complex in Griffith, about 5 miles (8 kilometers) south of Gary.
Two police officers were injured while rescuing a woman and her baby from the building’s third floor. The woman and her child were hospitalized for smoke inhalation and are expected to survive.
The fire’s cause remains under investigation.
