Fire officials say an 18-month-old baby has been killed and the child's mother injured in a two-alarm fire at a San Antonio apartment complex. Fire Chief Charles Hood says the woman jumped off the roof of the building after the early Sunday morning fire. She told firefighters her child was still inside before being taken to a hospital. No condition update on her was reported.

Flames as high as 80 feet prevented firefighters from entering the building. Technical rescue crews found the child's body around 1 p.m.

About 25 people were displaced and the building was a total loss. It sustained a half-million dollars in damage. Arson investigators are reviewing the fire.
