Duluth firefighters responded twice Saturday to reports of fire at a home in the Lincoln Park neighborhood that dislodged two families and did an estimated $60,000 in damage.

No one was injured.

The first call to 2325 W. Seventh St. came at 12:01 p.m., according to a news release from the Fire Department. A fire in a second-floor wall of the duplex was extinguished.

Most of the fire rigs had left the scene when smoke was seen coming from the attic. That fire damaged the roof and ceiling on the second floor.

Damage was estimated at $50,000 for the building and $10,000 for the contents.

The Red Cross has helped the families find temporary housing, according to the Fire Department.

The Duluth Fire Marshall's Office determined that an overloaded electrical circuit overheated and caused the blaze.
