PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) - A fire at a Portland apartment building injured five people, one of them critically.

Lt. Rich Chatman of the Portland Fire Bureau says the fire was reported Monday morning at a building on Northwest Lovejoy Street. They found flames and smoke coming from the apartment’s elevator shaft.

The person who was critically injured from smoke inhalation jumped from a second-story window to escape.

Investigators have yet to say what caused the fire.

The American Red Cross has opened a shelter for displaced residents of the 65-unit building.
