WANAQUE, New Jersey — An elderly man who was found on fire outside his northern New Jersey home has died from his injuries.

But authorities say it's still not clear how the fire started.

Further details on his death were not disclosed.

No other injuries were reported in the fire, which remains under investigation by Wanaque police and the Passaic County Prosecutor's Office.
