2nd student dies after fire
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 (http://bit.ly/QRnWSq) 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.
