Ottawa police say the man found on fire in a parking garage at Carleton University Tuesday has died. He was found with burns to 90 per cent of his body.

Fire officials said emergency responders were called at about 1:35 p.m. and treated a man in his mid-20s before paramedics transported him to hospital.

Fire officials said campus security put out the fire with an extinguisher before emergency crews arrived.

Carleton officials said the incident happened in parking lot 9, adjacent to Robertson Hall.

The parking garage was closed, and Carleton officials said any vehicles parked at level three of the garage would not be permitted to leave for a while.

Vehicles at other levels were to be allowed to leave once the drivers had provided police with their names and addresses.

Foul play is not suspected, police said.
