A man died and another was injured in a house fire in south Minneapolis Thursday afternoon.

The incident was reported to Minneapolis Fire Department at 3:20 p.m. on the 2500 block of East 24th Street, the Seward neighborhood.

When firefighters arrived, flames were coming from the first floor of the house, with crews finding a man on the first floor who died from his injuries at the scene.

A second man found on the second floor was removed from the building and treated at the scene by paramedics.

The cause of the fire is now under investigation.
