BRAHAM, Minn. (AP) — Two people are dead after a house fire in northern Minnesota.

Isanti (eye-SAN'-tee) County authorities were called to the fire in Braham (bram) just before noon Tuesday. A passer-by reported the house was "fully involved" in flames.

Firefighters from Braham and Cambridge put out the fire. After digging through the debris, investigators and firefighters found the bodies of two people, apparently a man and a woman.

The Star Tribune reports one of the victims has been identified, but the name won't be released until relatives are notified.
