Two people have died in a rural Longville cabin. A third person has been hospitalized.

The cause is suspected to be poor ventilation of a gas heater.

According to a press release from the Cass County Sheriff's Office:

Relatives found Lee Schwarze, 58, and Nancy Schwarze, 55, both of Hutchinson, Minn., dead in a rural Longville cabin Saturday afternoon and called authorities, who responded to the scene.

Their son, Michael Schwarze, 22, of Hutchinson, was found unconscious in the cabin. He was flown to Hennepin County Medical Center.

Autopsy results are expected later this week.
