NEW ORLEANS (WVUE) -

Firefighters rescued a man trapped inside a smoke-filled Treme hotel Monday night. 

According to The New Orleans Fire Department, a fire broke out at the Tirc Hotel on St. Ann Street just before midnight.

When firefighters arrived, heavy smoke was barreling from the two story wood framed thirty-room hotel.

According to a new release issued by the fire department, there were still people inside upon arrival.

Firefighters pulled out a man who had second degree burns and smoke inhalation. He was transferred to a hospital to be treated. 

A second victim was also treated and transported by NOEMS for what appeared to be two fractured ankles. The adult male stated he was injured after jumping from a second floor window to escape the fire. A third victim was treated on the scene for lacerations to his right arm but refused hospital transport.

The fire department conducted a second search of the building but did not find any further victims. 

Fifteen NOFD units carrying forty-two NOFD Fire Operations personnel were used to bring this incident under control at 12:47 a.m. There were no firefighter injuries reported and the cause of the fire is currently under investigation.  The New Orleans Police Department, NOEMS and Entergy all assisted in the mitigation of this incident. 

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
