OVER THE RHINE, OH (FOX19) -

A man has at least one broken ankle after jumping out of a third-story window to escape a fire this morning.

Crews were called to the scene of a fire in the 200 block of West McMicken Avenue in Over-the-Rhine around 4:30 a.m. The fire, in an apartment complex with six units, was quickly extinguished according to officials.

Other residents of the building were able to evacuate without injury and were put on a Metro Bus for relief from the cold. They were able to go back in to the building after crews put out the fire. 

The cause of the fire is still under investigation.
