NY fire hurts 1; woman, child jump out window

Officials in upstate New York say one woman was burned and another woman and child had to jump from a second-story window during a pre-dawn house fire.

The unidentified injured woman was flown to the burn unit at Westchester Hospital. The woman and the 4-year-old child who jumped from the house in Schenectady (skeh-NEHK'-ta-dee) were taken to a local hospital.

The victims' conditions were not immediately available.

Officials say the fire struck just before 5:30 a.m. Monday and destroyed the house in the industrial city about 10 miles west of Albany.
