1 victim of Minneapolis fire identified

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Authorities have released the name of one of two people whose bodies were found in the ruins of a burned-out Minneapolis apartment building.

The Hennepin County medical examiner’s office identifies the victim as 57-year-old Ahmed Farah Ali. The cause of death is under investigation.

Ali’s body was found Thursday as crews entered the fire-gutted building. Another body was found Friday.

Demolition of the building was completed Friday. Fire officials say they believe everyone who was in the building at the time of Wednesday’s fire has been accounted for.

The fire also injured 14 people, some seriously. The cause remains under investigation.
