Half of a four unit apartment building was already in flames when they got there. Five people living in the building had already gotten out. Three of them jumped from a second story window to make it to safety. Four people were treated for injuries at the scene, then taken to St. Mary's hospital to be looked over. The building is a total loss. The Red Cross is helping the people who lived in the apartment building with food, clothing and a place to stay.
