Minneapolis firefighters contained a three-alarm fire in a three-story multiple dwelling on June 26. 

The fire was reported around 4:15 p.m. at 920 E. 19th Street and units found fire showing from two windows on the third floor of the building. The occupant of the apartment escaped the building, but suffered smoke inhalation.

A second alarm was called to bring additional crews to the scene and firefighters cut a hole in the roof over the fire.

Multiple handlines were stretched from Engine 5 to bring the fire under control in 15 minutes.

A third alarm was called for additional crews due to the hot weather.

A total of seven engines, three ladders, one rescue, three chief officers and support units responded to the fire.
