A vacant North Minneapolis home was damaged by a fire Monday morning.

The Minneapolis Fire Department says crews were called to the reportedly vacant home near 33rd Avenue and Fourth Street North just after 11 a.m. Upon arrival, Firefighters saw heavy smoke coming from the building.

Crews searched the home and quickly upgraded the call to a second alarm for extra equipment and personnel.
