CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. (AP) – Neighbors stepped up to help firefighters and police officers who responded to an apartment fire in Middle Tennessee where several people were trapped in second-floor units.
The Leaf Chronicle (http://leafne.ws/1DA8Yty) reports one couple caught two children and a woman who jumped to get away from the flames. Firefighters rescued others from the building in Clarksville.
Clarksville Fire Marshal Ray Williams says due to the quick response from everyone there were only three minor injuries reported.
Williams said investigators think the fire began in a ground floor apartment kitchen.
In all, 18 people were displaced by the blaze.
