Posted:

LUCAN, Minn. (AP) -- Authorities say the remains of a second child have been recovered from the scene of a farmhouse fire in southwestern Minnesota.

The Minnesota Department of Public Safety says the body was found late Thursday afternoon. Two victims have now been recovered.

Two adults and several other children were able to escape the two-story house when fire broke out near Marshall Wednesday afternoon. Fire officials say the house in the town of Lucan was fully engulfed when firefighters arrived.

Vesta firefighter Neal Hansen was injured when he slipped and was run over by a tanker truck. He remains hospitalized in Mankato.

Names and ages of the victims will be released once positive identification is made by the Ramsey County Medical Examiner's Office.

The fire is under investigation.
