MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – Crews worked to put out a house fire in north Minneapolis on Thursday afternoon.
The Minneapolis Fire Department says when they arrived at a two-story home on the 3300 block of Emerson Avenue North, they found “heavy fire” showing.
Most of the fire was extinguished by 3 p.m.
Two men suffering from burns and smoke inhalation were transported to a nearby hospital in serious condition, the department said.
The home is uninhabitable.
MFD says they called a second alarm for more staff and extra equipment due to the excessive heat.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
