Firefighters have recovered the remains of a small child from a home in Itasca County after a fire Sunday night.

KSTP sister station WDIO-TV says a 911 caller reported the fire on Wendigo Road in Harris Township, southeast of Grand Rapids, about 9:25 p.m.

Glen Michael Campbell, 38, and Nichole Anne Juilen, 24, were taken to Grand Itasca Medical Center for injuries related to the fire and smoke inhalation.

Authorities are withholding the name of the child who died because family members are still being notified, but a family member tells WDIO-TV the victim is a 3-year-old boy.
The relative also says the two adults are hospitalized in critical but stable condition, and a second child, a 2-year-old girl, was treated and released.

Two fire departments, several ambulance services, the sheriff's office, the Minnesota State Patrol, and State Fire Marshal's Office responded to the scene.
