WASHINGTON (AP) — Officials say several people have been rescued from a building fire in northwest Washington.

D.C. fire and EMS spokesman Pete Piringer says firefighters were called to the 100 block of Kennedy Street about 10 p.m. Thursday for a report of fire in a two-story building. Firefighters rescued several people from the building, which houses a church and apartments.

Piringer says two women, aged 62 and 66, and a man in his early 50s, were injured. All suffered smoke inhalation and were in serious condition. A firefighter also twisted his ankle while rescuing one of the residents.

Fire officials say the fire started in a first-floor apartment and spread to the second floor.
