WEST ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) - A fire official says two bald eagles tussled in a tree in the front yard of a Minnesota home before firefighters arrived to break it up.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press (https://bit.ly/1cyWIhg ) reports a homeowner in West St. Paul contacted the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources when she saw the eagles fighting around 6 a.m. Wednesday. The agency then called the South Metro Fire Department.

Firefighter Patrick Noack, the acting lieutenant at the scene, says the birds were still fighting when firefighters arrived with a ladder truck around 9 a.m.

Noack says the eagles let go of each other when a firefighter and two agency officers went up in a bucket and were 20 feet away. He says the birds fell to the ground before flying away, and appeared unhurt.
