Firefighters are responding to a three-alarm blaze at a Haverhill apartment building that has reportedly spread to a seven-acre brush fire behind the structure.
It is unclear if this injury referred to an incident later confirmed by fire officials to the Eagle Tribune, in which a mother held her toddler and leapt from a second story building to escape the home.
The blaze reportedly began around 1 p.m. The fire had spread to the wooded area behind the building about an hour later.
