Firefighters from several agencies are battling a restaurant fire in Hibbing where temperatures are 17 below zero.

Smoke billowed out windows on the second floor of Sportsmen's restaurant where apartments are located. The building and Zimmy's restaurant next door were evacuated Thursday.

The Hibbing Daily Tribune says Nashwauk, Chisholm and Keewatin firefighters are also on the scene.
