Firefighters rushed to 23 Greenville St. around 10:40 p.m. to battle what turned into a two-alarm fire in a three-story apartment building.

One resident was taken to the hospital with burns; one firefighter suffered a knee injury. Two cats were brought out suffering smoke inhalation. Both revived when firefighters gave them oxygen.

The cause of the fire, which did an estimated $100,000 in damage, is under investigation.
