Fatal Fire In Blue Earth 13 Jan 12

A 57-year-old woman was killed in a house fire in the City of Blue Earth on Wednesday. Authorities say that Susan Domek died after she was rescued from the house and resuscitation efforts began. 57-year-old Dennis Spencer was able to flee the home on his own, but suffered burns to his upper torso. They were the only people in the residence when the fire broke out shortly before 8pm Wednesday. Spencer has since been airlifted to the Hennepin County Medical Center, where he is in critical condition. An initial investigation into the cause of the fire found that it may have originated from a wood stove in the basement. The State Fire Marshal’s Office is continuing the investigation.
