MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Fire crews battled a large fire at a warehouse in northeast Minneapolis Friday morning.

According to authorities, crews responded to the fire at Marshall Concrete Products at 2610 Marshall Street NE at approximately 7:25 a.m.

When crews arrived, they saw fire and smoke coming from both the top of the 30 foot building and from a mechanical conveyer belt that runs from the top to the exterior ground level.

Crews took measures to control the fire, which initially put an adjacent lumberyard at risk. Once the fire was under control and the building was deemed structurally stable, fire crew entered the site to put out the remaining fire.

The only injury reported from the scene was suffered by a firefighter, who sustained a minor injury from a fall. They were taken to Hennepin County Medical Center, and their condition is not known at this time.

The fire is currently under investigation.
