Los Angeles Fire Department officials said tonight that a man hurt during the Barrington Plaza fire earlier this week has died.

The fire broke out Wednesday morning in the 11000 block of Wilshire Boulevard. It was the building's second significant fire in seven years. The 25-story high-rise is among 55 remaining in L.A. that are exempted from current building code requiring sprinklers.

Nearly 340 residents were evacuated from Barrington Plaza due to the fire -- seven of whom were taken to a hospital for treatment.
