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."
