At least one is dead in a house fire Tuesday morning in Andover. 

The call came in around 3:00 a.m. from the 14300 block of Woodbine St. Northwest.

Crews found that the fire had started in the garage of the house, which was home to a family of four.

That's just south of Round Lake on the western side of Andover and north of downtown Anoka.

The victim is a 36-year-old man whose body was found inside the house.

Officials with the Anoka County sheriff's office say two boys inside the house, ages 13 and 16, were taken to a local hospital for smoke inhalation. 

Their injuries reportedly are not serious.  

They also say a 39-year-old woman was in the house and was able to leave the burning building safely.
