Three people were sent to the hospital Tuesday evening for treatment after an apartment fire at 400 N. Monroe in Green Bay.
Two of those people were sent to be treated for heat exhaustion, and one for smoke inhalation.
Fire officials say the call originally came in as a dumpster fire, but that fire spread to a nearby apartment building.
The building was evacuated, but because it is 10 stories high, some residents with disabilities were unable to leave their apartments.
Local 5 spoke to one resident who says she lives on the ninth floor.
As black smoke poured into her apartment, she was not sure how she would make her escape.
That’s when a neighbor stepped in and carried her and her dog down nine flights of stairs to safety.
Six apartments were damaged, either by the fire itself or water from crews fighting the blaze.
The Red Cross was on scene to help those without a home as a result of the fire.
Fire officials have not yet determined what caused the fire.
