Seven people, including UMD students, were without a home in Duluth Thursday night.

A fire roared through a 4–plex on 1st Street and 19th Avenue East.

No injuries were reported.

Crews rescued most of the pets in the building.  At last report, they were looking for one missing pet.

Assistant Chief of the Duluth Fire Department, Dennis Edwards, explained, “In this building, you have some pretty heavy duty building materials to get through, to get into several – probably dozens – of different concealed spaces, so that was basically just working hard to put holes and then apply water and foam.”

Damage was estimated at more than $150,000 Thursday.

The cause is under investigation.
