WASHINGTON - Two children were taken to a local hospital in “serious condition” after they were thrown from a burning building in Southwest D.C. Monday night.
The children's grandmother threw the children away from the flames, and they were caught by a "Good Samaritan," fire officials say.
Officials say the fire broke out in the 4400 block of King Avenue, Southwest at 7:53 p.m.
When they arrived, firefighters were confronted with heavy flames in a second-floor apartment.
The fire in the four-story apartment building has since been knocked down.
Aside from the children, no other injuries were reported.
They say displacements are expected.
