According to the St. Paul Fire Department, the fire broke out around 11 p.m. in the 1000 block of Wilson Ave. in the Dayton's Bluff neighborhood, reported the Star Tribune.
A 7-year-old girl said she was plugging in an electric heater in her bedroom when sparks flew onto her bed and started it on fire, reported the Pioneer Press.
When the fire started, the mother called 911 and fled the house with her children, reported the Star Tribune.
When the firefighters arrived, the single-story house was already engulfed in flames.
Everyone in the house escaped safely and the only injury was a burn to the 7-year-old girl's finger who was plugging in a space heater when it sparked.
