A man who was burned over 90 percent of his body from a house fire on Sunday died Tuesday morning.

John McKinney, 36, died just before 11 a.m. at Tampa General Hospital, a nursing supervisor said. The fire occurred at his girlfriend's home at 504 White Oak Ave.

Investigators initially said McKinney appeared to have been smoking in a bed in a ground-floor bedroom. No one else was injured.
