OSHKOSH, Wis. (AP) -- One person was killed and two were injured in a duplex fire in Oshkosh.

Fire officials say four other people in the lower unit of the duplex escaped the fire Wednesday night. WLUK-TV says two people in the upper unit jumped from second-story windows before firefighters arrived about 11:30 p.m.

Firefighters climbed up their ladders to reach the third person upstairs. That person was taken to a hospital and later died. The two other upstairs residents are hospitalized in stable condition.

The four family members downstairs were treated at the scene.
