The Fillmore County Sheriff's Office says the fire started after 1 a.m. Monday at a home on an Amish farm north of Canton, near County Road 21 and 130th Street, KIMT reports.

Officials say two people were injured in the blaze and were taken to the hospital, KTTC says, and a third person later went to the hospital to receive treatment.

Their conditions haven't been released.

Fillmore County Sheriff Tom Kaase confirmed to ABC 6 later on Monday that two bodies were found inside the farmhouse. Officials had said two people were unaccounted for following the fire.

Family members and neighbors told KTTC the owner of the farm and his son were killed in the blaze. The property is owned by a bishop in the local Amish community, neighbors told the Rochester Post Bulletin.

There is no indication of what caused the fire, but Kaase told the Star Tribune there are fire concerns in the winter for homes that rely on wood or propane for heat, noting this property used wood as a heating source.
