Woman, boy rescued from New Haven apartment fire

New Haven authorities say a woman and young boy were rescued from a burning second-floor apartment in a complex.

Emergency crews were called to the Cameron Court Apartments on Seiler Road in New Haven shortly after 2:30 a.m. Friday.

New Haven police Sgt. Brent Bolinger told WANE-TV that flames were shooting from a front window when he arrived and the woman lowered the boy to him from a back window.

Firefighters soon arrived and put a ladder up to the window and helped the woman down. Fire officials say most of the damage was contained to one apartment and part of the building's attic.

Officials said the woman and boy weren't hurt and no other injuries were reported.

The fire department later said that the fire was caused by candles the woman had lit after an earlier fire, and that the woman said she had forgotten they were burning all over the apartment.

Other building residents were not able to get back into their apartment because of water and smoke damage, the fire department said.
