If $G$ is a finite group and $X$ a conjugacy class of‎ ‎elements of $G$‎, ‎then we define $\rank(G{:}X)$ to be the minimum‎ ‎number of elements of $X$ generating $G$‎. ‎In the present article‎, ‎we‎ ‎determine the ranks for the Fischer's simple group $Fi_{24}^{\prime}$‎ ‎and the baby monster group $\mathbb{B}$‎.
