A fire Sunday morning in a Fort Collins apartment building has claimed the lives of a woman and a child.
The victims were trapped in a second floor unit after the stairs became engulfed in flames. After the fire broke out, the woman was seen screaming, "My baby's inside."
Firefighters trying to rescue them first tried to enter through a bedroom window in the apartment but had to turn back because of extreme fire conditions and smoke. The firefighters then entered the apartment through another window but the woman and child were already dead.
Residents say the woman was in her 20s and that she had an infant daughter.
Five other people were injured and taken to a local hospital. At least three people jumped from the second floor to safety.
