LAS VEGAS (AP) - A Las Vegas fire official says two people are hospitalized and three others were treated for breathing trouble after fire caused smoke to fill the second floor of a three-story downtown apartment building.

Fire spokesman Tim Szymanski (zim-ANN’-skee) says firefighters quickly doused flames when they arrived about 6 a.m. Friday at the building on Stewart Avenue near 7th Street.

Szymanski says a man and a woman in the apartment where the fire started were taken to University Medical Center with injuries that he says didn’t appear to be life-threatening.

The cause of the fire wasn’t immediately determined.

Szymanski says firefighters helped several people with limited mobility to safety, where they were being helped by the American Red Cross.
