HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WAFF) - Multiple Huntsville Fire & Rescue units responded to an apartment fire on Rime Village Dr. on Tuesday afternoon.

Don Webster with HEMSI says one female resident was taken to Huntsville Hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and a Huntsville Fire & Rescue firefighter was taken to Crestwood with non-life-threatening injuries for overexertion.

Huntsville Fire & Rescue Deputy Fire Chief Derrick Stuckey said they received reports of people entrapped and jumping out of windows to escape. Stuckey says most of the fire was in the attic.

Units were still fighting hots spots as of 5:25 p.m. and will more than likely remain on the scene throughout the night. The power to the apartment building has been turned off.
