Three people were injured and dozens were evacuated late Saturday night during an apartment fire on University Avenue, officials said.
Crews responded to reports of a fire at the Casa Blanca apartment building at 2302 University Ave. just before midnight and saw smoke billowing from the eastern section of a three-story apartment building, according to a release.
Officials said dozens of people were evacuated and there were reports of at least one person trapped inside.
Crews observed two people on the third floor who were unable to evacuate through the smoke and fire on the first and second floors, according to the release. Those two people were rescued from a third-floor window.
Firefighters also helped a first-floor occupant who was just making his way to the front door when they arrived, officials said. He was transported to UW Hospital.
Two firefighters were also transported to UW Hospital, where they were treated and released.
