UPDATE:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - At least three of the 14 people injured in an explosion and fire at a Minneapolis building remain hospitalized in critical condition.
   
Ten victims from Wednesday's fire at a three-story building that houses a grocery store and apartments were taken to Hennepin County Medical Center. The hospital said Thursday that three remain critical, six are in satisfactory condition and one person has been released. The victims suffered burns, broken bones or both.
   
Fire officials said six people were critically injured and some victims were taken to Fairview University hospital. Spokeswoman Jennifer Amundson said Thursday she could not release any information.
   
No fatalities have been reported, but authorities aren't sure whether any residents are still inside the building. Its roof had partially collapsed, making it too dangerous for firefighters to enter.

PREVIOUS STORY:

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - A fire has engulfed several apartments in Minneapolis, and authorities say at least 13 people have been hurt.
    
Robert Ball of Hennepin County Emergency Medical Services says at least 13 people were injured in the Wednesday morning blaze, some critically.
    
He says the victims have been taken to hospitals with injuries ranging from burns to trauma associated with falling or jumping from windows.
    
Ball says there have been no reports of deaths. He says it's unclear whether everyone has been evacuated because it's still too dangerous for firefighters to sweep through the premises.
    
Plumes of thick, gray smoke could be seen rising from the three-story building. Firefighters' efforts are being hampered by sub-zero temperatures.
    
Ball says there were reports of an explosion before the fire broke out.
