EAU CLAIRE, Wis. (AP) -- A second student has died after fire swept an off-campus apartment near the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire.
A spokeswoman for Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis says 21-year-old Jacob Clarkson died Tuesday.
Clarkson's family issued a statement saying they will "miss him more than words can say." Family members say they are honoring Clarkson's decision to be an organ donor.
The Leader-Telegram reports Clarkston was severely burned in Monday's fire that also killed his roommate, 21-year-old Ross Livermore.
Two other roommates escaped the fire and have been released from a local hospital. All of the roommates were friends from Stillwater, Minn.
