Officials with the Neenah-Menasha Fire Department say a toddler rescued from an apartment fire last week died Monday.

 Four people, including the 18-month-old boy, were pulled from the burning building Thursday.  Firefighters say the rest of the one dozen people inside managed to reach safety on their own.  The boy died at Wisconsin Children's Hospital in Wauwatosa.  Fire investigators say an older child caused the fire by playing with a cigarette lighter.
