Two people died in a house fire on Elliott Avenue early Sunday morning.
The fire call came at 1:31 a.m. and fire officials arrived on the scene at 1:36 a.m., the Star Tribune reported. The first responding crew got stuck in the snow, in what Minneapolis Fire Chief Alex Jackson called the 'worst possible weather conditions to fight a fire,' WCCO-TV said.
Six people were rescued from the fire, four of whom were hospitalized with injuries, the Star Tribune said.
The names and ages of the two victims who did not survive have not yet been released.
