An apartment complex caught fire in Glendale on Thursday afternoon, sending large plumes of greyish- white smoke into the sky.

Firefighters were called out to 140 Carr Drive around 3 p.m. after smoke could be seen billowing from a two- story apartment complex.

Although it ‘s unknown how the fire started, city spokeswoman Eliza Papazian said it had spread to the basement and first floor of the building.

At least six people were rescued from the complex and two firefighters incurred minor injuries, according to Papazian.

In an interview with KABC, Fire Chief Silvio Lanzas said both firefighters fell from the first floor to the basement level of the building.

The pair were immediately rescued and are expected to make a full recovery.
