Assistant Chief Clint Reff says crews were dispatched to a residence on the 2200 block of West 4th Street around 5:30 a.m. Reff said the caller reported a porch was on fire and the flames were 'growing fast.'

When they arrived, they saw a woman jumping out of a second-story window. She was treated for burns and smoke inhalation, and taken to the hospital where the fire department says she remains in the ICU. The fire department says the man and young girl exited through the back door, and were not injured.

The first crews on scene noticed the two-story residence was 'heavily involved.' Reff said all people inside the house were evacuated and Duluth police officers were able to evacuate residents inside neighboring homes.

The fire department says smoke detectors alerted occupants of the fire.

Initial damages are estimated at $75,000. Five companies responded.

The Duluth Police and Fire Departments are investigating.
