A University of St. Thomas student was killed in a house fire in St. Paul early Saturday morning.
Michael Adam Larson, 20, of Woodbury, who was a sophomore at St. Thomas, died at 3 a.m. Saturday in the fire that occurred at Selby Ave., according to the Star Tribune.
Several Twin Cities media outlets told the Woodbury Bulletin that Larson was asleep on the couch when the fire started.
The Star Tribune reported that three others who were in the house at the time of the fire-two of them roommates and the other a girlfriend of one-jumped from a window of the second story of the house to escape.
St. Paul Fire Marshal Steve Zaccard told the Star Tribune that the fire started on the enclosed porch of the house, but an official cause has not been determined. However, the cause is not believed to be suspicious.
