Teen Expected to Be OK After Leaping from Fire in Ft. Mitchell

A Northern Kentucky teen is expected to be OK after jumping from a third-floor window in Ft. Mitchell where an apartment building caught fire on Wednesday afternoon.

The girl, 17, was taken to Cincinnati Children's Hospital where she is expected to be OK. The teen is reportedly a student at Beechwood High School.

WCPO reported that all the residents of Mitchel's Park Apartments were able to escape the flames, but firefighters had to rescue animals inside.

WLWT reported that the girl and her mother and mother's boyfriend had just returned from vacation a few hours before the fire broke out.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
