Four Hospitalized by Destructive Detroit Apartment Fire

A large fire at a three-story Detroit apartment building forced some people to jump from windows to escape and sent at least four people to hospitals.
 
The fire burned Wednesday morning on the city's west side near Interstate 96. Firefighters rescued about 25 people and a bus was used to provide temporary shelter.
 
Detroit Fire Commissioner Jonathan Jackson says the fire started shortly after 6 a.m. on the north side of Jason Manor Apartments.
 
Jackson tells the Detroit Free Press that the building had 42 units and 39 were occupied. The Detroit News and WWJ-AM report crews are making sure everyone is accounted for.
 
Jackson says police had been called to the building earlier to deal with a disturbance at a party. The cause of the fire wasn't immediately known.
