CHICAGO (CBS) — Firefighters rescued several people from a burning apartment building in the Austin neighborhood early Monday, although one man was seriously injured when he jumped out a window to escape the flames.
WBBM Newsradio’s Bernie Tafoya reports residents of a five-story apartment building at 123 N. Central Av. said they heard smoke alarms going off around 3:45 a.m. The fire started on the fourth floor. Flames and smoke damaged the fifth floor as well, and parts of the third floor sustained water damage.
Some people were rescued from their apartments after firefighters used ladders to reach the windows of the upper floors.
