WDIO-TV reports the two adults and two children did not have a pulse when firefighters pulled them out of the house. The fire department says crews were able to resuscitate the children and they were taken to the Hibbing hospital with life-threatening injuries. Authorities later confirmed that one of the children died. The other is in critical condition at Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis.

Fire officials say a third juvenile was outside the home when crews arrived and was also hospitalized. It's unknown how everyone is related.
