3 people hurt, including firefighter in Avondale apartment fire


SHOOTING OUT OF AN APARTMENT
BUILDING IN AVONDALE. ASHLEY YOU CAN SEE HOW
DANGEROUS THIS WAS. PEOPLE WERE HURT AND CREWS WERE
CALLED OUT AROUND 11:00 THIS
AFTERNOON. — AROUND 4:00 THIS AFTERNOON. TODD: THIS ONE WAS CERTAINLY BAD
ENOUGH. YOU STILL HAVE FIRE CREWS
REMOVING THINGS THAT HAD BEEN
BURNED IN THE FIRE. YOU CAN SEE THIS IS A MULTI
FAMILY UNIT HERE. TO THIS SIDE OF ME, WE HAVE A
LADDER TRUCK LEAVING THE SCENE. THEY ARE STILL PUTTING OUT ANY
HOTSPOT. A DIFFICULT SITUATION. THERE WERE AT LEAST THREE PEOPLE
WHO JUMPED TO SAFETY. THREE PEOPLE JUMPED TO SAFETY
AND TWO OF THOSE PEOPLE HAD TO
BE TAKEN TO THE HOSPITAL. ONE FIREFIGHTER SUFFERED
INJURIES FROM BATTLING THE FIRE
OUTSIDE THE BUILDING. HE MADE THE DECISION TO JUMP TO
SAFETY. LISTEN AS HE EXPLAINS WHAT WAS
GOING THROUGH HIS MIND.>>A LOT OF PEOPLE SCREAMING AND
A LOT OF CONFUSION. I WAS REALLY NERVOUS ABOUT THE
NEIGHBORS BECAUSE THEY WERE
TRYING TO JUMP OUT OF THE
WINDOW. THAT WAS THE SCARY PART ABOUT
IT. TODD: HE SAID HE WAS VERY
WORRIED ABOUT THEIR CONDITION. THE INJURIES DO NOT APPEAR TO BE
LIFE-THREATENING. IT APPEARS TO BE A THIRD STORY. ONE MAN JUMPED ONTO THE CONCRETE
PAVEMENT LOW. A LOT OF CONCERN FOR THOSE WHO
WERE INJURED. IT APPEARS THEY ARE NOT LIFE
THREATENIN
