ST. PAUL (WCCO) — St. Paul firefighters had a tough time trying to get control of two early morning house fires.
The fire started shortly after 5 a.m. Sunday morning on the 600 block of Case Avenue in St. Paul. It started on the second floor.
The family was home at the time but everyone got out safe. The fire then quickly spread to another house.
“So the fire spread from one to the other and started a fire in the attic of the other house, so we had two fires here at the same time,” said Steve Zaccard, fire marshal.
No one was hurt in the fire, but one man did have to be rescued.
The Red Cross said they are assisting one adult and four children from the fire.
Fire investigators are still trying to determine how the fire started.
