1 Taken to Hospital After Arlington Apartment Fire

ARLINGTON, Va. — Fire officials say one person was taken to a hospital with life-threatening injuries after a three-alarm fire at an Arlington County apartment complex.

Officials say residents jumped from windows to escape the smoke and flames at the Harvey Hall apartment complex on South Greenbrier Street on Sunday.

Arlington County fire officials say several people were treated for injuries and one person was taken to the MedStar Washington Hospital Center with life-threatening injuries. A second person already on oxygen was taken to the hospital as a precaution.

Officials say the blaze started in a second-floor apartment and the second and third floors were heavily damaged by the fire. The cause is under investigation.

The Red Cross says it is helping about 40 people displaced by the fire.
