DULUTH — One person is hospitalized after being rescued from a fire Tuesday afternoon in the Piedmont Heights neighborhood.

According to a news release from the Duluth Fire Department, firefighters responded to a call at 2:09 pm for a structure fire at 3035 Hagberg St. Upon arrival, firefighters found the front of the four-bedroom residential structure fully engulfed in flames. Most of the occupants had evacuated safely, but one person remained inside.

That person was later rescued and transported by ambulance to a nearby hospital for further treatment and monitoring, according to the news release.

The fire department said damage to the structure and contents is estimated at $400,000. The cause of the fire has not been released as the Duluth Fire Marshal’s office investigates the incident.

The Duluth Police Department and St. Louis County 911 assisted the Duluth Fire Department.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of “staff.” Often, the “staff” byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
