A man who was one of eight people injured in an explosion on the top floor of an apartment building in the city of Chicago in the United States has died.

The Chicago Fire Department said Friday that the “critical victim” has died from his injuries. The fire department did not release the name of the man, who was taken to Loyola Medical Center after Tuesday’s explosion.

The Cook County Coroner’s Office identified the deceased as Shabron Robinson, 29, of Chicago. Department spokeswoman Brittany Hill said Friday afternoon that Robinson’s body had not yet been found.

Chicago Fire Department spokesman Larry Langford told the Chicago Tribune that the victim of the explosion “had burns over 90% of his body” and the department pronounced him dead Thursday.

The fire department said Friday that investigators “determined the source of the explosion to be a natural gas ignition.” But the cause of the fire is still under investigation.

Local natural gas company Peoples Gas said in a statement that its home service was “operating properly”. The company added that natural gas pipes and building materials “are the responsibility of building management and/or residents.”

“There is no reason to believe that any of our devices – or any other part of our system – was responsible for the accident,” the utility said.

The explosion that occurred at around 9:00 am on Tuesday occurred on the top floor of the four-story building that contains 36 units in the South Austin neighborhood of the city of Chicago, causing the building to partially collapse.

The explosion is believed to have originated in an apartment building on the upper floor, which destroyed most of the building’s windows. City building regulators stabilized the building on Wednesday.

The owner of the building, Roman Viere, told the Chicago Tribune that 31 of the 36 units of the building were occupied at the time of the explosion.

The Chicago Police Department’s bomb squad and agents from the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives also responded to the blast.
