A fireman walks away from an apartment building after it was destroyed by a four-alarm blaze on Detroit's west side early Wednesday. There were no immediate reports of any deaths caused by the fire at the Jason Manor Apartments, which broke out at about 6 a.m., but at least four people were hospitalized for injuries suffered while jumping from windows to escape the flames. About 25 people were rescued, many wearing only pajamas as they were kept warm on school buses in the early-morning cold, reported NBC affiliate WDIV.
