The children were rescued from a fire at the Cannon Valley Apartments on Wednesday. They were airlifted to the Twin Cities for further care and at last update were described as stabilized in medically-induced comas. 

A news release issued by the Hennepin County Medical Examiner Sunday morning indicates one of the rescued children, 10-month-old Seqouyah Johnson, died at a Minneapolis hospital early Friday morning. The cause of her death was described as “Inhalation of products of combustion.”

A news release issued the day of the now deadly fire by the Cannon Falls Police Department says the first officer to arrive at the scene encountered the mother, who informed the officer  that three children were inside the apartment and she had been cut trying to get them. At that point, the officer reported a bedroom in the apartment was engulfed in flames.

The officer responded by breaking out the windows to another bedroom and the living room. The news release indicates one of the children was spotted by a member of an ambulance crew and a second child could be seen in the living room.

After clearing the broken glass from a window, the emergency medical services member climbed into the burning apartment and handed both children to a police officer and another ambulance crew member. A firefighter then found the third child, who was also handed to an officer.

The remaining residents of the building have been displaced by the fire and representatives of the American Red Cross were called to help them find temporary housing. The cause of the deadly fire is under investigation.
