UPDATE 11:50 am - Our crew on the scene says one adult, 3 infants, a 2 year old, and a 12 year old were inside the home at the time of the fire.

The adult and an infant were  upstairs. The adult had to drop a 10 month old out of the second story window, into the arms of waiting neighbors below. That baby was taken to the hospital with burns.

The adult had to jump out of the window and hurt her ankle. She was taken to the hospital for treatment as well.

A couple children were also taken to the hospital to be treated for their injuries. Two children were treated on the scene.
