Email News Alerts

An elderly couple died Monday morning in a fire that engulfed their old farmhouse about two miles southwest of Roseau, Minn.

Terry Bandemer, chief deputy with the Roseau County Sheriff's Office, said certain identification of the bodies will require autopsies and the use of dental records.


The sheriff's office isn't releasing the names yet, partly because he's not sure all the relatives had been notified by Monday evening, Bandemer said.
