1 rescued from second floor, 1 jumps to safety in S. Minneapolis fire

One victim jumped to safety and another victim was rescued from the second floor as firefighters worked to contain flames at a south Minneapolis home.

The fire broke out around 3:45 a.m. at 2700 18th Avenue South. It began on the porch and spread to the first and second floors. Firefighters discovered one victim on the second floor with second-degree burns and the other jumped to safety, but both men were taken to Hennepin County Medical Center. Everyone was accounted for, but their conditions haven't been released as of Tuesday afternoon.

Two children typically live in the home but they were not present at the time of the fire. One firefighter was treated for injuries on-scene and another has been treated and released from the hospital
