MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Several people are without a home Monday after a fire burned through three townhomes in the southeast metro.

Woodbury fire officials say the fire started shortly before 9:30 p.m. Sunday in a development called Pondview Townhomes, on the city’s northside. It took crews several hours to knock down the flames, which destroyed three units.

Residents told WCCO-TV that they’ve had on-going issues with their properties. Fire officials could not say whether those issues were connected to the fire.

The fire remains under investigation.
