MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — Crews knocked down a house fire Tuesday afternoon in southeast Minneapolis.

The Minneapolis Fire Department says firefighters responded to a two-and-a-half story home on the 700 block of 2nd Avenue Southeast, in the city’s Marcy-Holmes neighborhood.

Crews knocked down flames on the front porch before moving inside to battle the fire, which spread to the home’s attic.
