CY-FAIR, TX – Ten people were hurt early Wednesday morning, during a 3-alarm blaze that burned down a three-story apartment building in a northwest Harris County complex. The injuries, not a result from the flames themselves, but from falls.
“One woman throw her baby, almost 13-month baby, and somebody catch on the road. The situation is very, very, extremely bad,” Ahmed Ali said. “I see two people jumping from the apartment. I think they broke their legs, and a girl also broke her legs. And maybe two more people started jumping from the other side. At first they throw the mattress, and they jump on the mattress.”
Eight were taken to a nearby hospital. Two were treated on scene. None of the injuries are life-threatening.
No word on a cause.
