DETROIT (WWJ) – Authorities say a woman and two children were injured in a house fire on Detroit’s east side.

Fire officials say they were called to a home in the 800 block of Navahoe, near E. Jefferson, around 5 a.m. Wednesday.

When firefighters arrived, a woman in her 20s was outside with an infant, who suffered minor burns. The woman told firefighters that a young boy was still trapped inside the house.

Firefighters rushed into the multi-family home and were able to rescue the child, who was unresponsive. Firefighters performed CPR on the boy and transported him to Children’s Hospital in a fire truck.

Once an ambulance arrived on the scene, the woman and the infant were transported to a local hospital for treatment of minor injuries.

Authorities say all three are expected to be OK.

It wasn’t immediately clear what caused the fire, but officials say an investigation is ongoing.
