May 10, 2013

NEW HAVEN (AP) — Authorities say a woman and young boy were rescued from a burning second-floor apartment in a complex near Fort Wayne.

Emergency crews were called to the Cameron Court Apartments in New Haven about 2:30 a.m. Friday. New Haven police Sgt. Brent Bolinger tells area media that flames were shooting from a front window when he arrived and the woman lowered the boy to him from a back window.

Firefighters soon arrived and put a ladder up to the window and helped the woman down. Fire officials say most of the damage was contained to one apartment and part of the building's attic.

Officials say the woman and boy weren't hurt and no other injuries were reported.
