The cause of the fire is under investigation.

One person died and two people were injured in a house fire in Minneapolis Tuesday night. 

According to the Minneapolis Fire Department, crews responded at 10:50 p.m. to a home at 1703 26th Ave. N, where they found smoke coming from a second-floor bedroom. 

Two men were rescued – one was brought out the front door and another was found in a second-floor bedroom. One of them was transported to the hospital for smoke inhalation, while the other refused treatment. 

Firefighters found a third man in a second-floor bedroom where the fire started. He was dead when they arrived. 

The fire department tweeted at 11:14 p.m. that the blaze was under control. The cause of the fire remains under investigation. 

The man's death marks the third fire-related death in the City of Minneapolis this year. 

Last year, at least 53 people died in fires in Minnesota – a 13% increase from the year prior, according to the State Fire Marshal.
