1 UW-Eau Claire student killed, 3 hurt in fire


EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (AP) -- Authorities have identified the young man killed and three others injured when fire swept their off-campus apartment near the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.

Eau Claire fire officials say the four roommates were friends from Stillwater, Minn. They lived in an apartment above a real estate business in Eau Claire. Two of the four men escaped the building when fire broke out early Monday, while firefighters found two others unconscious inside.

Fire officials say 21-year-old Ross Livermore, a computer science major, was killed in the fire. Twenty-two-year-old Jacob Clarkson, also a computer science major, is hospitalized at Hennepin County Medical Center in critical condition Tuesday. The university says Livermore was on an approved leave from the university.
