Fire displaces 14 people in St. Paul

A 24-year-old man jumped from a second-story window early Sunday in order to escape a fire, reports the Star Tribune.
The man suffered only cuts, bruises, and an injured ankle in the jump, and was taken to Regions hospital, and 14 residents of the duplex were displaced in the fire, according to St. Paul fire marshal Steve Zaccard, writes the Star Tribune.
A 30-year-old man was rescued from the first floor of the duplex located at 716 Aurora Ave., and was administered CPR by firefighters and was later treated by Regions Hospital reports the Star Tribune.
The Pioneer Press reports that fire crews rushed to the house at 3:58 a.m. About eight crews with 30 firefighters were on the scene for about two hours, according to the Pioneer Press.
The fire caused $80,000 in damage, and is considered suspicious according to Zaccard, and remains under investigation, but he would not give any details, according to the Pioneer Press.
