[ARCHIVED] Killeen Firefighters put out apartment fire involving mother, baby

Wyoming Street Apartment Fire

Both are in stable condition after fire on Wyoming Street

The Killeen Fire Department rescued three people and put out a fire at an apartment on 502 Wyoming Street this morning at 3:45.

The apartment building consists of eight-units, although only five are occupied and the flames were contained to a single unit. There were three people in the unit and the mother was able to drop her baby from the second-floor window to the safety of a bystander who was able to catch the baby below. The mother was then able to escape the flames out of her front door and downstairs. Of the eight units, two are uninhabitable and the remaining six have no damage. 

The woman’s brother also escaped and was not injured. The mother and baby were transported to Baylor, Scott and White Medical Center and are both in stable condition.

The cause of the fire is under investigation by the Fire Marshal’s office.
