Two people were hospitalized Thursday night after an apartment caught fire in northwest Portland.
Firefighters rushed to the scene at Northwest 5th and Northwest Glisan just after 8:30 p.m. and found flames showing from a third-floor window with reports of a person inside, according to Portland Fire & Rescue.
Crews making their way inside the building discovered a man and brought him to medics waiting outside, Portland Fire & Rescue says.
A second person was found walking outside and said they were suffering from smoke inhalation.
Firefighters say both patients were transported to area hospitals.
Witnesses Thursday night said they saw a man hanging out of a third-story window.
"He was hanging out on the window sill," one witness said. "And he was asking for help, terrified...I was terrified for him."
