MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) --- At least one person was sent to the hospital after a fire at an apartment complex in Milwaukee Saturday night, Jan. 3.

Residents were forced to jump out of their windows and many people remain displaced after the fire broke out at an eight-family apartment complex near 91st and Custer around 8:20 p.m.

Police say a 27-year-old woman was injured jumping out of a second story window. She was taken to a local hospital and is expected to survive.
