BURNSVILLE, Minn. — One person was transported to a hospital after a fire at an apartment complex in Burnsville on Saturday.

The Burnsville Fire Department says crews responded to the Parkvue Flats on the 1500 block of Burnsville Parkway shortly before 9 a.m.

Residents of the 100-unit building were evacuated and cared for on the scene. The building has five stories and does not have a fire sprinkler system, officials say. Roughly 50 units were displaced because of the fire. 

One person with minor injuries was taken to a hospital. Another person and one firefighter were evaluated at the scene but did not need further assistance.

An initial investigation points to a fire that was started intentionally, city officials say. Police apprehended a man who is currently in custody. The investigation will continue.

The American Red Cross opened a shelter for those displaced by the fire at Glendale United Methodist Church on 13550 Glendale Road in Savage.
