Two people are dead after a fire that consumed a house just south of Osceola in Polk County. The Polk County Sheriff’s Department and the Dresser-Osceola-Garfield fire department were notified of the blaze just before seven Tuesday morning. Sheriff’s Lieutenant Steve Smith says the remains of both victims have been found. Autopsies will be conducted in the Twin Cities to make positive identifications. Smith says the cause of the fire has not been determined, and one person was able to escape the home.
