A 25-year-old man who was rescued from a fast-moving fire in a St. Paul home Saturday morning has died from his injuries. Firefighters received report of a fire on the 1400 block of Van Buren Avenue in the Frogtown neighborhood just before 6 a.m., according to St. Paul Fire Marshall Steve Zaccard. Crews arrived within minutes, but the fire had already done extensive damage to the second floor.
St. Paul Fire Marshal Steve Zaccard said a working sprinkler system made the difference between two fires that happened recently in the city.
Firefighters said a sprinkler system saved a second high rise building in St. Paul in just a week.
