ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — The St. Paul Fire Department says a 25-year-old man who was rescued from an early morning fire has died.
Daniel Trabant died at Regions Hospital on Sunday afternoon.
Fire Marshal Steve Zaccard says the fire was caused by an unattended candle in a bedroom. He says the fire was reported about 5:45 a.m. Sunday, and the entire second story was engulfed when firefighters arrived.
Seven people were inside sleeping when the fire started. Six escaped without firefighters help. He says firefighters found Trabant unconscious in the house and performed CPR. He was taken to Regions in critical condition. Another man was taken to the hospital in stable condition.
The Ramsey County medical examiner's office will determine the cause of death.
Zaccard says all seven people were college age.
