The Duluth Fire Department responded to the fire with six units, but the tenants had already contained the fire using an extinguisher.

“We didn’t have to use the hoses because they did all the right things,” said Assistant Duluth Fire Chief Chris Martinson. “They used an extinguisher and called 911.”

The fire was reported at about 6:30 p.m. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
