HIBBING - Two people were taken to the hospital after a fire broke out above Sportsmen's restaurant in some second floor apartments in Hibbing.Fire officials say about 30 people from the Hibbing, Chisholm, Virginia, Mt. Iron, Nashwauk and Keewatin Fire Departments helped battle the blaze in the below zero temperatures.
They say that made it more difficult to fight the fire and caused mechanical issues with the engines.
They say it's also part of the reason they needed so much help fighting the fire.
The entire building and Zimmy's restaurant next door also had to be evacuated.
Officials say they're looking into what caused the fire, but at this point it's too early to tell what the exact cause is.
