A fire broke out around 3 p.m. Sunday at a triplex in northeast Minneapolis.
The blaze happened at 608 Taylor Street Northeast, according to the Minneapolis Fire Department.
The Red Cross was called for four adults, seven children, three cats and five dogs, the fire department said, noting that all three units in the building were deemed uninhabitable. Six of the children were under the age of 6-years-old.
Firefighters laid lines to the middle apartment and evacuated the building. The fire extended to the second floor and the roof's exterior, according to a press release. Flames were contained to the middle unit but the other two had smoke and water damage despite not catching fire.
The bulk of the fire was extinguished by 3:21 p.m. and was fully out seven minutes later, according to the fire department.
All children were evaluated by emergency personnel at the scene. No injuries were reported and the cause of the fire is under investigation.
