The Red Cross is taking in residents of a northeast Minneapolis home that sustained significant damage in a fire Saturday morning.
According to the Minneapolis Fire Department, crews responded to a fire at a home near Jefferson Street and 26th Avenue Northeast just before 9 a.m. Heavy black smoke was spewing from the roof vents and gable.
Firefighters found the fire on the second-floor attic area and worked to put out the flames from the inside while conducting a search of the house; the building was all clear.
A second alarm was called for additional crews and equipment, and firefighters were able to put out the fire, but the home sustained "extensive fire and water damage."
Medics evaluated two firefighters at the scene, but they were not taken to the hospital.
The home was deemed uninhabitable, according to the fire department.
The cause of the fire is under investigation.
