Authorities have now released the name of the child who died in a house fire early Sunday morning just outside Detroit Lakes in northwest Minnesota. Two-year-old Micah Hedlund was killed and three others hospitalized. Children in the basement reportedly heard the smoke alarms and went to tell the rest of the family, but the stairway was blocked by flames. The parents were able to escape through a second floor window, then realized the 2-year-old was unaccounted for. The father and an older brother went back inside but couldn’t find the child because the home was fully engulfed.
