Sixth body found in burned Minneapolis building

The body of the sixth person killed in a fire that burned through a two-story building in south Minneapolis has been recovered.

Minneapolis fire officials said the body of a child was found in the gutted building Friday evening. The bodies of a woman, two men and two other children were found hours earlier.

Their names have not been released. The fire began in a second-floor apartment, but the cause hasn't been determined.  Officials say they don't believe anyone else died in the fire.  Firefighters said the blaze broke out about 6 a.m. in the building, which had an Irish pub on the first floor and six apartments on the second. The roof collapsed and parts of the second floor fell into the first.
