A fire at a southeast Las Vegas apartment complex early Sunday morning led to at least one man jumping from a second-floor window, the Clark County Fire Department said.

Twelve people, half of them children, also were displaced.

The Fire Department said it responded shortly after 2 a.m. to the Maryland Haciendas apartments, 1256 E. Hacienda Ave.

“Callers reported that one male jumped from the second-floor window and a child was dropped down to that male,” the department said in a statement.

The man who leaped from the building was taken to a hospital for treatment of unspecified injuries. At least one more resident was transported to a hospital for treatment of possible smoke inhalation.

The fire’s cause is under investigation; a damage estimate is pending.
