A woman and two children decided to leap to safety–jumping from the condo’s windows, which are about 12 feet off the ground, according to a fire department spokesperson. The three were transported to Eskenazi Hospital with minor injuries.

A fourth victim was visiting the complex. The adult male managed to escape the fire using the stairs. He was being checked for smoke inhalation.
