So he did not die as a direct result of the fire (not of burns, falling floors, smoke inhalation). Correct? Did the fire cause something to happen that eventually killed him?

Two different thoughts:
First idea:
Was he possibly outside the house when the fire was inside? Did he die of exposure to the elements?

Second idea:
Was this a real house? If not, could it have possibly been a houseboat? Did he die freezing in the water?

Long shot:
Did he live in a cold country where the heater was the only means of survival from freezing, but, after he ran out of his house to escape the fire, the outside temperatures were too cold and in his rush, he forgot to bring warm clothes / a shawl / blanket and froze to death in the snow?

Maybe the neighbours started throwing in snow to stop the fire but ended in covering the whole house in snow, thus, causing the man to die of hypothermia?

Ok, just thought of this:

Was he an arsonist? Did the police tell him to "freeze" and then shot him?

SPOILER
He was an traveler in the north. He found an igloo, and he started up a fire. He fell asleep, the igloo melted, he died because of the fire by freezing: pretty ironic, huh?
