2 adults, 6 children displaced due to apartment fire in Minneapolis

Two adults and six children were displaced Saturday morning after a fire left the apartment unit in Minneapolis uninhabitable.

According to the Minneapolis Fire Department, at 4:18 a.m., crews responded to a three-story residential apartment building in the 3000 block of Pleasant Avenue South.

Upon arrival, crews found fire showing from a 3rd-floor balcony with an extension into the apartment unit. Crews laid lines for an interior fire attack, evacuated buildings and completed searches.

The fire crew said they were able to extinguish the interior and exterior fire, but due to the extensive fire and water damage to the 3rd-floor apartment unit, it is uninhabitable.

Red Cross was called for two adults and six children that were displaced due to the fire. All other residents were able to return to their apartments. There were no injuries reported.

The cause of the fire will be under investigation.
