A house fire on Wednesday morning in North Minneapolis left one man dead and two firefighters injured.

The victim who was inside the supposed to be vacant house was taken to Hennepin County Medical Center after a firefighter gave him first aid. He was later pronounced dead.

Two firefighters suffered minor injuries after they fell through the floor of the burning house.

The house, which was supposed to be vacant left authorities puzzled as to why the man was in there.

"As you look at the building you'll notice that there is a piece of plywood on the front door," Dep. Chief Todd Steinhilber, of the Minneapolis Fire Department told Kare11. "One of the crew went to the back door immediately and found the backdoor wide open."
