People jump from windows to escape Dallas fire

Reports of dramatic escapes resulted from a raging apartment complex fire early Tuesday in southeast Dallas, according to reports.

Firefighters said several people jumped from second-story windows. They tried to escape out their doors, but were confronted by flames, according to broadcast news reports.

No major injuries were reported, however.

Officials with the American Red Cross were helping 15 people who lost everything in the blaze, said Anita Foster, a spokeswoman for the agency.

"Red Cross workers are providing financial assistance so that these families, most only in their pajamas, can purchase items like shoes, clothing, groceries and more," Foster said. "The apartment manager does have available units so all of the families will be able to remain at the complex."
