THOMASVILLE, N.C. — A fire displaced about 100 people at an apartment building in Thomasville early Tuesday morning.
The fire started in a second-story unit at 11 Pine St., which is the old Thomasville hospital. From there the fire spread to another unit.
Firefighters were able to put the fire out within 30 minutes.
Firefighters said two people jumped from a second-story window. One person was taken to the hospital for treatment after complaining of back pain.
The 100 residents who live there were taken to the Salvation Army. The Red Cross has been called in so residents will have somewhere to go later today.
The fire chief said it is unlikely anyone will be able to return because of the smoke damage throughout the apartment building .
Investigators haven’t gone in yet to determine the cause of the fire.
