A second UW Eau Claire student has died from serious burns suffered in an apartment fire on Monday.

21-year-old Jacob Clarkson died yesterday at the Hennepin County Medical Center in Minneapolis. One of his roommates, 21-year-old Ross Livermore, was found dead at the scene of the blaze.

Two others escaped with minor injuries.

Clarkson’s family said it would honor Jacob’s request to be an organ donor, and the family asked for prayers for them and the other victims’ families.
