Three people injured in an apartment fire on Tucson’s south side

TUCSON (KVOA) – Three people were rushed to hospital on the south side of Tucson after an apartment fire on Wednesday morning.

The crews were dispatched to the complex near Valencia Road and Twelve Avenue just before 5 a.m.

Crews rescued a person trapped in the apartment, according to the Tucson Fire Department.

One person remains in critical condition and the other two are stable, TFD said on Wednesday afternoon.

“Residents helped crews by putting up a ladder for victims to escape when their main exit was cut off, as seen in the third photo,” TFD said.

The Southern Arizona Red Cross says they are working with 15 residents to see if they need help.
