Posted:

LAKE HOLCOMBE, Wis. (AP) -- The toddler injured in an apartment fire last week in Lake Holcombe has died of his injuries.

The Chippewa County Sheriff's Department says 2-year-old Anthony Harp died at a hospital in Minnesota Saturday night. His parents, Sean Harp and Amber Liebe and their 3-year-old son were able to escape the fire last Thursday.

Sean Harp used a garden hose to try to control the fire until firefighters arrived and rescued the 2-year-old.

WQOW-TV says first responders worked for 30 minutes to revive the child.
