ST. CLOUD, Minn. (KNSI) - A GoFundMe account has been established to help the families of the two Minnehaha Academy employees killed in the explosion at the Minneapolis school on Wednesday.

The GoFundMe page says Ruth Berg and John Carlson illuminated the school with kindness and love.

Ruth was always smiling and often took tickets at basketball games and John cleaned the school with a smile on his face and would watch games from the balcony above when he had time.

Ruth had a fiance and a daughter, and John was married.

The creator of the account says the least we can do is to provide for the loved ones of two people who did so much for the community.

The campaign has a $20,000 goal.

Meantime, a man who was injured in the explosion, believed to caused by a gas leak, remains in critical condition.

Minnehaha Academy says Bryan Duffey is a facilities team member.

Two other adults remained hospitalized Thursday in satisfactory condition.
