VIDEO: The 2-year-old injured in an apartment fire in Lake Holcombe passed away Saturday night. The Chippewa County Sheriff's Department identified the boy as Anthony N. Harp, son of Sean N. Harp and Amber J. Liebe. Liebe told officials Anthony died at the hospital in Minnesota. Harp, Liebe and their 3-year-old son were able to escape the fire, but the parents were not able to get Anthony out of the building. The father used a garden hose to help keep the fire under control until firefighters arrived and rescued the child. They found the 2-year-old unconscious and not breathing, and rescuers worked for 30 minutes to revive him. The Chippewa County Sheriff's Department and the Cornell Fire Department are currently investigating the fire.
