8, including baby, hurt in apartment building fire
OSSIPEE, N.H. (AP) — An apartment building fire in New Hampshire has injured eight people, including a baby who’s in critical condition, firefighters said.
About half of the 49 residents were home in the four-story, 15-unit building in Ossipee when the fire happened just after noon Thursday, state police said. Flames were coming from the third floor.
Three people jumped from windows on the third and fourth floors, and two children were dropped from upper windows, firefighters said. Some of the injured suffered from smoke inhalation.
The origin and cause of the fire are being investigated by the state fire marshal’s office.
