EUGENE, Ore. --- One person was rescued and hospitalized after an apartment fire Saturday afternoon.
Fire officials responded to the fire on Clark street around 4:00 p.m.
Crews had to force entry into the apartment, where they were able to bring the victim down safely from the second floor using a ladder.
They told KEZI 9 News the fire was mostly put out by a sprinkler.
One neighbor got a look at the damage in the apartment as he was evacuating and said he's just glad everyone made it out safely.
“I saw a lot of smoke, and there was a lot of blood. You could see the blood on the side of the window, where the windows broke out. You could see the blood on the side of the building too, so he must have cut himself when he broke the glass,” neighbor David Trosclair said.
The victim, who fire officials said was conscious and alert, was transported to the hospital for evaluation.
