Man dies after fire sweeps through St. Cloud home

ST. CLOUD, Minn. (AP) - St. Cloud police say a fire has swept through a home, leaving one man dead and two people with apparently minor injuries.

Police say officers responded to the fire Saturday just before 6 a.m. Firefighters helped evacuate the six people in the home.

Authorities say a 42-year-old man was pronounced dead at the scene.

A male and a female were treated for smoke inhalation at a hospital and released. Three men in the home were apparently unhurt.

Police say a preliminary investigation suggests the fire was not suspicious.

The victim's name has not been released.
