SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC 4 Utah)- Firefighters responding to a two-alarm apartment fire early Saturday morning rescued a 19-year-old man hanging out of a second-story window on the side of the building.

Crews quickly extended a ladder and climbed up to safely remove the man from the building just after 1:20 a.m. at 1121 East and 500 South.

He was treated for minor smoke and inhalation at the scene and then released.

The apartment building, including the basement, consisted of six apartment units. All of which were damaged during the fire. Fourteen residents were displaced.

Red Cross of Utah is assisting two of the residents. A sign has been posted at the scene of the fire for any returning residents that many need the Red Cross to assist them.

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
