CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa (AP) - Firefighters in Cedar Rapids say a 43-year-old woman has been hurt in an apartment fire.

Fire officials say in a news release that the fire was reported around 2:30 p.m. Friday at the Gateway Apartments.

Officials say the woman received CPR at the scene, and was taken to a local hospital with life-threatening injuries. Her condition was not known late Friday afternoon.

The release says the fire was contained to the room where it started, and the apartment sustained only moderate fire and smoke damage.

Other residents were not displaced by the fire.
