DECATUR, Ga. (AP) - Firefighters in DeKalb County say children playing with fire caused a blaze that destroyed six units in an apartment building.

Local media report the fire broke out Thursday afternoon.

Witnesses said the fire began on the first floor and quickly spread to the roof, causing some residents to jump from the second floor to escape the flames.

Firefighters say two people were injured. One suffered smoke inhalation and another suffered a foot injury while trying to jump to safety.
