                         House Fire Fatality

On Monday, October 8, 2012 at 5:57 a.m., an off-duty Eau Claire
police detective observed flames coming from the windows in the
upstairs apartment at 630 1/2 Water St.

Police officers arrived on scene but were unable to enter due to
the progression of the fire.

Two male residents from the apartment were able to escape while
two other male residents were still inside.

Fire personnel arrived at this location, made entry into the
apartment, and located two unconscious people inside.

Personnel from both Eau Claire Fire and Eau Claire Police
attempted resuscitation efforts on these two individuals and
both were transported to a local hospital by ambulance.

Ross A. Livermore, date of birth 12/01/1990, was pronounced dead
at the hospital. An autopsy is scheduled for Tuesday, October 9,
to determine the cause of death.

The second individual transported from this apartment had life-
threatening injuries.

Three of the residents from this apartment are University of
Wisconsin-Eau Claire students. The University Administration has
been notified.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation by the Eau
Claire Fire Department.
