HENRICO, VA (WWBT) -

A construction worker has died from injuries sustained in last week's fire at a warehouse in Henrico's West End.

Administrators at Hadley Construction in Pittston, PA confirmed the death Tuesday. They say the other worker injured has undergone a number of surgeries. They expressed their deep sadness over the incident.

The workers were private contractors doing salvage work in the empty warehouse in the 7400 block of Ranco Road, not far from Staples Mill Road, when the fire started around 2 p.m. Friday.

The call originally came in as a report of a burn patient, but the situation quickly escalated. Crews got to the scene to find two people burned.
