Firefighters in Minneapolis responded to a structure fire Thursday afternoon on the city's south side.

According to the fire department, the two-alarm fire occurred at a home on the 2500 block of 18th Avenue South.


No one was injured in the fire. Ten residents total were displaced by the fire, including a mother and her two children who were rescued from the second floor by firefighters. The Red Cross is helping those displaced.

"The second floor is not going to be habitable," Deputy Chief Kathleen Mullen said.

As of 4:50 p.m., the bulk of the fire had been knocked down.

Mullen did not say what caused the fire, but confirmed it started from the outside of the home.
