Firefighters tackled a stubborn fire that spread through a one-story home in St. Paul on Nov. 23. 

The fire on Arkwright Street North was dispatched around 2 p.m. and companies found heavy fire in the basement and first floor of the one-story home.

Three hoselines were put in service to knock down the fire on both levels of the home.

The two occupants escaped before firefighters arrived.
