Lake Jefferson Fire Claims Second Life….

The Le Sueur County Sheriff’s Office says that 54-year-old Steven Charles Strohn of Omaha, Nebraska, died from his injuries today (Friday). His mother, 80-year-old Joann M. Strohn of Des Moines, Iowa, died from her injuries on Monday.

Both suffered 2nd and 3rd degree burns from the explosion and fire that occurred at the cabin on French Drive on Saturday May 20th.

Investigators say the explosion and fire were caused by a natural gas leak in the cabin’s lines, which sent gas into the cabin and ignited/exploded into fire.
