When firefighters arrived finally made their way into the smoke-filled apartment on Madängsgatan, the approximately 65-year-old man had suffered serious burn injuries and crews were unable to save his life.
Emergency crews received a call about the blaze shortly before 3:00am and an hour later work continued to put out the flames.
The fire failed to spread to other apartments in the building.
