A large fire has seriously damaged a home in north Minneapolis early Monday.

The fire occurred at a 2 1/2-story residential home in the area of Adams Street and 13th Avenue.

When firefighters arrived at the scene at about 4 a.m., they found flames coming from the attic.

One person was inside at the time and was able to make it safely to the backyard. That person was taken to a nearby hospital for smoke inhalation treatment. A firefighter was also taken to a nearby hospital for treatment of an unspecified injury.

The Minneapolis Fire Department then designated the incident as a two-alarm fire, requesting additional help.

Firefighters remained at the scene to work on extinguishing hotspots and the cause of the fire is currently unknown. Officials said three people were displaced as a result of the fire and that the Red Cross is assisting them.
