A Monday morning fire in Duluth's Morgan Park neighborhood caused an estimated $200,000 worth of damage to a six-plex residential building, according to a news release.
Everyone made it safely out of the residential building, located at 917 N. 88th Ave. W., and no injuries were reported. The fire reached three units and an attic before it was extinguished.
The Duluth Fire Department responded to the report of a structure fire around 9:50 a.m. A 911 caller stated an explosion occurred and that a person was trapped inside the building. This prompted additional emergency units to respond to the scene, the news release said.
The first crew to respond to the scene reported a "large amount of fire" in the back of the building. Crews then searched all units and assessed the extent of the fire, while other crews put out the fire and vented the heat and smoke.
They monitored the building to determine the extent of the fire and impact on personal items inside the three impacted units, according to the release.
Fire departments from Gary-New Duluth, Spirit Valley, Lincoln Park, Downtown and the University of Minnesota Duluth responded, as well as Mayo Clinic Ambulance Service, Comfort Systems, Minnesota Power and Minnesota State Patrol.
