LOCKLAND, Ohio - Fire crews fought a fire at a Lockland three-story apartment building, which resulted in at least one injury early Friday morning.
Fire billowed out of the apartment building at the corner of Williams and Davis streets at about 3:30 a.m. Officials knocked out the flames after battling the blaze through the morning.
As the fire grew, at least one person jumped from a third floor apartment. Emergency crews transported the jumper to an area hospital and officials have not released information about that person's condition at this time. Fire crews rescued two children from the flames.
Several fire departments responded to the scene at about 4 a.m. to help put out flames, but the fire grew again at about 4:30 a.m. causing crews to scale back their efforts because of the intensity of the fire.
Officials have not released information about the number of people injured or the cause of the fire.
Authorities have not released any additional details about the fire at this time.
