Two people were taken to a hospital after a house fire early Monday in south Minneapolis.

All residents were evacuated, but a woman suffered a burn to her head and a man was also hurt in the fire, which broke out about 1:55 a.m. at a residence on the 5500 block of Clinton Avenue S., Melanie Rucker of the Minneapolis Fire Department said.

Flames were shooting from the 2½-story residence when crews arrived, and extra firefighters were called to help.

The Red Cross will be assisting the victims.

The cause of the fire has not yet been determined.
