A car fire at a Fridley Walmart engulfed three vehicles and left two young passengers injured in a taxi van parked next to the vehicle where the fire originated Tuesday, Aug. 6, 2019, in Fridley, MN. Here, fire investigators look over the charred remains of a vehicle fire where two children were injured, one critically.

One of two young sisters badly burned when two vans parked side-by-side caught fire outside a Fridley Walmart has died, and manslaughter charges filed Wednesday say a man's hot stove in the van next to the girls' vehicle ignited the blaze.

Six-year-old Ty'rah White died Tuesday night while being treated at HCMC, said Anoka County Sheriff's Lt. Daniel Douglas. Her 9-year-old sister, Taraji, remained in critical condition late Wednesday afternoon, a hospital spokeswoman said.
