MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Authorities said a family is displaced and a firefighter suffered minor injuries in an early-morning house fire in northeast Minneapolis.

The Minneapolis Fire Department responded to a report of a fire at about 5:35 a.m. Saturday to an occupied duplex on the 2300 block of Johnson Street NE. When crews arrived, heavy fire was showing. Firefighters were able to knock down the exterior portion of the fire before heading inside the residence to put out the rest of the fire and search for victims.

Authorities said two adults and one teen were able to get out before fire crews arrived, authorities said. They got out safely, but the American Red Cross was called into provide assistance.

Authorities said one firefighter suffered a minor injury from a fall while battling the blaze, but is expected to make a full recovery. The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
