Vancouver fire crews battled a three-alarm fire at the Bridge Creek Apartment Homes on Sunday morning. The blaze broke out about 5:12 a.m. at 9211 NE 15th Avenue.

Investigators believe the fire started in a center unit on the 2nd floor and quickly spread. The Fire Marshall's Office is looking into a cause.

One woman had to be helped down a ladder.  A man took himself to the emergency room for minor burns and blisters on his shoulder.

The Red Cross is on scene assisting residents displaced by the fire.
