One person was rescued after crews were called to a fire in Uptown Minneapolis Wednesday afternoon.


Minneapolis Fire Department said crews responded to a structure fire on the 2700 block of Fremont Avenue S. at about 1:30 p.m. Upon their arrival, firefighters saw smoke showing from a residential duplex and began searching the home.

The department said on social media that an adult woman was trapped on a second-floor balcony. Crews deployed a ground ladder and were able to rescue the woman.

A fire was located in the stairwell, and firefighters were able to extinguish the flames.

At this time, it's unclear if the woman or anybody else was injured in the fire, and the total amount of damage caused is unknown.
