A Linn County, Kansas firefighter has died after he was injured battling a structure fire earlier this week.

Joshua Haynes, a volunteer firefighter with the Linn County Rural Fire Department, was one of the first firefighters to make entry Monday night in a fire at the Carpenter Chiropractor Clinic in Pleasanton. Haynes was flown to University of Kansas Health System, where he died Wednesday.

The Kansas State Fire Marshal's Office and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives are still investigating the cause of the fire. The ATF said Tuesday that no foul play is suspected.
