    A woman jumped from the third-floor of an apartment to escape a fire on Thursday, Dec. 4, 2014.

    A woman was hospitalized in critical condition Thursday night after jumping from the third floor of an apartment during a fire, officials said.

    The fire broke out in the three-story "garden-style apartment" in the 600 block of Venice Way in Inglewood, California, according to the LA County Fire Department.

    The 54-year-old woman jumped from the window to the ground near the pool, officials said.

    She was hospitalized in critical condition and possibly broke her back and a leg, Los Angeles County Fire Department Supervisor Kyle Sandford said.

    Firefighters knocked down the blaze, which was confined to one unit, in less than 20 minutes, officials said.
