DENVER (CBS4) — Three adults and two children were taken to the hospital early Saturday afternoon following an apartment fire in west Denver.

The woman had already dropped two children down to bystanders before fire crews arrived.
Residents of the eight-family complex have told CBS4 the woman then jumped from the window herself and landed on a glass patio table.
Those residents said the woman was pregnant.
The woman suffered smoke inhalation, according Capt. Greg Pixley of the Denver Fire Department.READ MORE: COVID In Colorado: National Jewish Administers Johnson & Johnson Vaccine
