1 injured after Minneapolis condo building fire

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) - Minneapolis fire officials say one person has been injured after a condo building fire.

The eight-unit, three-story building caught fire about 8:10 a.m. and caused traffic problems during rush hour in the busy commercial and residential district.

Minneapolis Fire Marshal Perry Ebner says one person was taken to a hospital for smoke inhalation. A hospital spokeswoman says the 70-year-old first-floor resident was in satisfactory condition at HCMC.

Ebner says they are still investigating what started the fire.

Ben Garber moved into the building about a month ago. The 32-year-old tells the Star Tribune the fire happened quickly and he didn't have much time to get out.
