DENVER (AP) - The Denver apartment building fire that forced some residents to jump to escape is being investigated as a criminal act.

The Denver Fire Department announced the move Tuesday but spokeswoman Melissa Taylor declined to provide any details about the reason for the probe.

Eleven people from the Federal View Apartments, including two infants, went to the hospital, where two patients were initially listed in critical condition. Two people remained hospitalized Tuesday.

Residents told firefighters that the hallways of the 26-unit building were filled with thick smoke. Some witnesses say a woman threw a baby from a third-floor window to people below.
