MUSKEGON HEIGHTS, Mich. — Firefighters from Muskegon Heights and Norton Shores quickly put out an apartment fire Saturday afternoon, and a mother and two children escaped through a window.
The fire broke out around 5 p.m. in the 700 block of E. Hovey Avenue. That’s west of S. Getty Street, on Muskegon Height’s east side.
A Muskegon Heights fire lieutenant tells FOX 17 the mother jumped out of a second-story window and the children were handed down to people on the ground. Only minor injuries were reported.
The fire’s cause is being investigated, although it appeared accidental in origin.
