Fatal house fire may have started in kitchen

MEADOWLANDS, Minn. (AP) — St. Louis County sheriff’s officials say a fatal house fire in Meadowlands appeared to have started in the kitchen.

Authorities say 75-year-old John Stossel called 911 shortly before 1 a.m. Thursday to report his house was filled with smoke. Stossel said he and his wife, 72-year-old Karen Gosch, were unable to get out of the house. Firefighters responded and got the couple out before the house was destroyed by fire.

Both were taken to Essentia St. Marys where Gosch was later pronounced dead. Hospital staff tell WDIO-TV (http://bit.ly/1dUdtgs ) Stossel is in critical condition.
