7 hospitalized after 3-alarm fire in Ocean Hill
Seven people have been hospitalized after a three-alarm fire broke out in an Ocean Hill apartment building around noon Sunday.
Officials say the flames first broke out in the shaft on the first floor and then spread to the second and third floors.
Fire officials say that the snow and low temperatures also caused problems in putting out the flames. They say some of the hydrants weren't working because of the weather.
They say a woman and a baby boy were taken to the hospital, and are expected to be OK.
Several other people inside the building at the time were able to walk out on their own.
Some of those residents say they just ran out of the apartment and left everything inside.
The fire chief says five firefighters were also taken to the hospital but none of their injuries are considered life-threatening.
