MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A duplex fire on the 600 block of Charles Avenue in St. Paul appears to have started at a nearby chicken coop, according to authorities.
Fire officials were called to the fire around 9:40 a.m. Sunday, just in time to keep the fire from spreading.
Authorities say the fire started in the coop, which was attached to one of the bedroom windows.
All residents in the home were able to get out safely. One resident was treated on scene for minor smoke inhalation.
The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
Because fire crews were able to get to the fire early, the house is still inhabitable, so residents were allowed to return inside.
