Investigators still haven't found a cause of the explosion that rocked Cedar Avenue South in Minneapolis on New Year's morning.

The explosion and fire killed three people and injured 13 others. Many of the victims remain in the hospital Sunday.
    
The first victim was identified Friday as Ahmed Farah Ali, a 57-year-old resident of one of the apartments. His body was recovered from the site Thursday. A second body was recovered Friday but has not yet been identified.
    
The Hennepin County Medical Examiner's office said Saturday that 29-year-old Abdiqani Adan died at the Hennepin County Medical Center on Friday afternoon. He did not live in the building.
