Ohio apartment fire displaces dozens of residents

TOLEDO, Ohio (AP) — The residents of 49 apartments in northwestern Ohio have been displaced by a fire.

Fire officials say four people had to be rescued out of a window after the fire broke out Saturday morning at the Monroe complex but that there were no serious injuries.

The Blade of Toledo reports (http://bit.ly/1oKU5Ny) that two residents were taken to the hospital after inhaling excessive amounts of smoke.

Fire officials say all the apartments in the complex were damaged by fire and firefighters' prolonged use of water.

Most of the building's roof had collapsed.

Most of the families living in the complex had renters' insurance that will provide them with a temporary stay in a hotel.

The Red Cross moved the remainder to a shelter in a local church.
