A South Minneapolis house, over 100-years-old, caught fire early Saturday morning leaving one person dead and four other hospitalized.

Firefighters arrived at the house, 2812 1st Av. S., at 4:30 a.m. Saturday and found the front of the 2 1/2-story house on fire and surrounded in smoke, the Pioneer Press said.

Firefighters found five people inside the house. One died at the scene and the others were taken to Hennepin County Medical Center with conditions still unknown, the Star Tribune said.

The owner of the building, Cy Ratsamy, said that he was renting the home to a mother in her 40's, her boyfriend, and the woman's daughter. No names have been released of the victims, the Pioneer Press said.

The cause of the fire remains unknown, the Star Tribune said.
