Fatal Fire on Iron Range
MOUNTAIN IRON, Minn. (AP) — Authorities say a woman is dead and two other people seriously injured after a house fire in Mountain Iron, on northeastern Minnesota's Iron Range.
Firefighters from several departments were called to the fire in Mountain Iron's downtown at about 8 a.m. Friday.
Virginia Fire Chief Allen Lewis tells WDIO-TV there was "no survivable space in the building."
The St. Louis County Sheriff's Office later confirmed that the body of a 56-year-old woman was found in the ruins.
Two people were able to escape the blaze but suffered serious injuries. They were taken to a Duluth hospital.
The home was destroyed. There is no word on what may have caused the fire.
