One Severely Burned in Apartment Fire

A woman is in critical condition at a Dallas hospital after an apartment fire in Longview early this morning. The fire started at the Eden Place Apartments.

Several people were inside including a baby boy. Investigators say a man and woman escaped through a back window, climbing down a nearby pine tree, the woman cradling the baby on the way down.

 Then another woman was forced to jump out a front window... She suffered burns over 70 percent of her body. The unit was destroyed.

Investigators say the occupants were lucky to get out alive. The fire remains under investigation.
