MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Four people injured in a fatal apartment explosion and fire in Minneapolis remain hospitalized.

Three survivors of the New Year's Day fire in the Cedar-Riverside neighborhood are at the Hennepin County Medical Center. Two remain in critical condition and a third is satisfactory.

A fourth victim, Ali Jama, is in fair condition at the University of Minnesota Medical Center, Fairview. The 41-year-old truck driver broke both legs and several ribs when he jumped from a second-floor window to escape the fire. He told Minnesota Public Radio (http://bit.ly/1cnXBSl ) that he prayed, but he thought he could die.

The bodies of two men were recovered from the rubble. A third man later died of his injuries.

The cause of the fire that destroyed the Otanga grocery and displaced residents from the apartment above remains under investigation.
