A St. Louis County Public Works crew, while conducting planned archaeological exploratory digging on Arlington Avenue in Duluth in preparation for a future project, has unearthed a series of wood coffins and what appears to be a human bone. The artifacts were found last Wednesday on the east side of Arlington Avenue just south of Arrowhead Road.
Two children - ages 5 and 6 - received severe injuries in a fire. The children had been playing in a shed when they tipped over a gas can. They tried to clean up the gasoline spill with an electric shop-vac, but it ignited a fire.
No one was living in the residence at the time of the fire. The State Fire Marshall is now investigating the case.
