EAGAN, Minn. (WCCO) — One man is dead and two others are hospitalized after a fire engulfed a town home in Eagan.
Firefighters had to battle mother nature as they tried to get control of the fire.
The fire started shortly after 6 a.m. Sunday morning, on the 1500 block of Aspen Drive. When crews arrived on scene, the structure was fully engulfed in flames and heavy smoke was observed in the area.
Two men who were trapped on the second level of the home were forced to jump out a second-story window. Both sustained injuries, but it’s unclear how severe. They were transported to Regions Hospital in St. Paul for treatment and evaluation.
Officers were also advised that one man was trapped on the second floor. After the fire was extinguished, fire personnel on the scene located a deceased victim on the second floor.
