GRAND RAPIDS, Minn. (AP) - Authorities say a child has died in a fire at a home in Itasca (eye-TAS’-kah) County.

The sheriff’s department says two adults were injured in the fire at a home in Harris Township. They were taken to Grand Itasca Medical Center Sunday night.

Authorities have not released the child’s name or age, but a family member tells WDIO-TV (https://bit.ly/1cohdNa) the victim is a 3-year-old boy.

The relative also says the two adults are hospitalized in critical but stable condition, and a second child, a 2-year-old girl, was treated and released.

Two fire departments, several ambulance services, sheriff’s deputies, the Minnesota State Patrol, and State Fire Marshal’s Office responded to the scene about 9:30 p.m.
