At least 3 Minn. fire victims remain critical

Posted:
MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - At least three of the 14 people injured in an explosion and fire at a Minneapolis building remain hospitalized in critical condition.
  
Ten victims from Wednesday's fire at a three-story building that houses a grocery store and apartments were taken to Hennepin County Medical Center.

The hospital said Thursday that three remain critical, six are in satisfactory condition and one person has been released. The victims suffered burns, broken bones or both.
  
Fire officials said six people were critically injured and some victims were taken to Fairview University hospital. Spokeswoman Jennifer Amundson said Thursday she could not release any information.
  
No fatalities have been reported, but authorities aren't sure whether any residents are still inside the building. Its roof had partially collapsed, making it too dangerous for firefighters to enter.
