Eagan officials say an early morning fire displaced 20 residents at the Cinnamon Ridge Apartments on Thanksgiving Day.

The fire on Slater Road was reported at 3:24 a.m., and arriving crews found flames on all three floors of the structure.

A total of 24 apartments were evacuated, but the fire was brought under control in 22 minutes. The last fire units cleared the scene at 6 am.

One resident who tried to extinguish the fire suffered minor burns and was treated at the scene. No other injuries were reported.

Firefighters say the flames were mostly contained to the exterior of three apartments, and they believe the fire began on the balcony of one of the apartments. The cause of the fire has not yet been released.

One apartment on the second floor suffered minor fire damage inside. Several units have substantial smoke and water damage, and six were closed to about 20 residents.

Officials say the Salvation Army is helping those displaced residents, and the American Red Cross is helping three displaced families -- five adults and three children -- by providing food and clothing.

One fire engine from Burnsville and another from Apple Valley assisted as all five of Eagan's fire stations responded to the fire.
