St. Thomas student dies in house fire

A University of St. Thomas student died early Saturday in a house fire in St. Paul.

The Pioneer Press reported that Michael Adam Larson, 20, of Woodbury, was asleep in his home on the 1700 block of Selby Avenue in St. Paul, when a fire started around 3 a.m., police said.

Larson's three other roommates, who were asleep upstairs when the fire started, were able to escape the blaze by jumping from a second story window. They suffered smoke inhalation and minor injuries and were taken to Regions Hospital, according to the Star Tribune.

Firefighters have determined that the fire started on the enclosed porch, but no cause has been found, and authorities don't think it is suspicious.
