Three people are recovering Friday after being rescued from an house fire in Brighton.
Firefighters say the fire started in a first floor apartment on Monroe Avenue near Brooklawn Drive around 1:30 a.m. Officials say smoke detectors woke up the people inside, but heavy smoke and flames made it difficult for the three occupants to escape on their own. After being rescued by firefighters, the residents were transported to Strong Memorial Hospital for evaluation.
Investigators are working to determine the cause of the fire.
