6 Adults, 5 Children Displaced After Fire In South St. Paul

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Authorities say six adults and five children are displaced after a house fire in South St. Paul overnight.

Fire crews were called to the 700 block of 7th Avenue in South St. Paul at about 3 a.m. When authorities arrived, they saw that a single family home had a fire that apparently started in a bedroom. Everyone got out of the home safely and no firefighters were hurt fighting the blaze.

Three dogs were also rescued from the house and were not harmed.

Authorities said the house suffered fire, water and smoke damage. It was put out in about 10 minutes. The cause of the fire remains under investigation. The American Red Cross is assisting the victims in the fire.

    I am glad that everyone is alive and no injuries at all. Including the firefighters and the animals. You can always replace items, but you can never replace humans or animals.

    But by looking at this house, it don’t look large enough to hold that many people at all. Maybe a family of 4 or 5 tops. I am guessing that these people are here illegally? No I don’t know what country they are from and I really don’t give a rats rear what country they are from. But that many people in one house has to be illegal in so many ways, even if they are citizens of this country.
