Four people are in the hospital after a fire in the city’s South Austin neighborhood.

That fire happened at 1053 North Leamington, early Tuesday morning.

A woman is in serious to critical condition after she jumped from the second floor.

Seven adults and two children were displaced.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Fire officials say the building did not have any gas service.
