A pair of Minneapolis firefighters are recovering following a dramatic house fire Saturday morning.

According to the Minneapolis Fire Department, the blaze broke out on the 1800 block of Dupont Ave S., which is in the Lowry Hill neighborhood near Uptown:

The fire, which was soon declared three-alarm, was not fully extinguished until the afternoon.

One firefighter was separated from his crew and running low on oxygen, and ultimately had to be rescued from a second-floor window with the aid of an aerial ladder, KARE 11 notes. 

The station says he and another firefighter were "being evaluated at the hospital," but did not suffer any serious injuries. 

It's not clear how the second firefighter was hurt.

According to KSTP, contractors were working in the house "at the time of the fire," but none was injured. 

The station says the cause of the fire is under investigation.
