1 UW-Eau Claire student killed, 3 hurt in fire

EAU CLAIRE (AP) -

Authorities have identified the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire student who died in an apartment fire and his three roommates who were injured.

Eau Claire fire officials say the four students were friends from Stillwater, Minn. They lived in an apartment above a real estate business on Water St. in Eau Claire. A police detective on his way to work spotted smoke coming from their apartment about 6 a.m. Monday.

2 of the four men escaped the building, while firefighters found two others unconscious inside.

Fire officials say 21-year-old Ross Livermore, a computer science major, was killed in the fire. Twenty-2-year-old Jacob Clarkson, also a computer science major, is hospitalized at Hennepin County Medical Center with serious burns.
