A man who died in a fire Saturday night at his home on Madison's Southwest Side has been identified as Patrick M. O'Brien.
The Dane County Medical Examiner's Office said O'Brien, 64, died from injuries sustained in the fire on the 4000 block of Sheffield Road. The Madison Fire Department was alerted about the blaze at the single-family residence about 6:50 p.m.
By the time firefighters arrived, a woman had made it out of the house, but it was reported someone might be trapped in the home.
Firefighters pulled O'Brien out of the house, which was engulfed in flames, the Fire Department said. Resuscitation attempts at the scene were unsuccessful.
