Minnesota's fire fatalities have spiked to 52 this year, with most dangerous weeks to come
Emergency vehicles were clogging the South St. Paul street as Chanry Soeng arrived home after working the second shift at a Lakeville packaging plant.
When she realized they were at her house, she sprinted toward the door, demanding to see her children.
First responders restrained her, then delivered terrible news: her husband, Soeun Sem, 60, and the couple’s youngest son, 2-year-old Eric, had died in the fire. Their older boy, 5-year-old Alexander, had been taken to Regions Hospital in St. Paul, but would not survive the night.
