The death of a retired construction worker who mysteriously caught fire in a north London street is being investigated by Metropolitan Police.
John Nolan, 70, died after he caught ablaze in Orchard Place, Haringey, on September 17.
He was unmarried and originally from County Mayo in Ireland.
Police and emergency services were called to reports of a man on fire near Orchard House at 1pm.
London Fire Brigade (LFB) quickly extinguished the blaze and Mr Nolan was rushed to a special hospital by London Air Ambulance where he sadly died.
A post-mortem showed John died from severe burns.
An inquest will open at Barnet Coroner's Court on March 13 2018.
The cause of the blaze was investigated by specialist LFB investigators, and no accelerant was found.
Detectives from Haringey police are investigating and enquiries to establish what happened are ongoing.
No arrests have been made and the death is being treated as unexplained at this time.
Investigating officer, PC Damien Ait-Amer, said: "We have spoken with a number of witnesses who saw Mr Nolan abalze, but we have yet to establish how the fire started.
"Mr Nolan was a well-liked member of the community and none of our enquiries so far have indicated that he had been involved in a dispute of any sort.
"Nor does any account given by witnesses suggest that he had been in contact with another person at the time of the fire."
Anyone who witnessed the incident but has yet to speak with police is urged to call PC Damien Ait-Amer via 101. You can also tweet information to police via @MetCC.
