DEKALB COUNTY, GA (CBS46) -

A fire in a DeKalb County apartment complex has forced 14 people out of their homes. It happened Thursday evening off of North Decatur Road. Officials said it all started as a grease fire inside one of the units.

An 11-year-old girl said she caught a baby tossed from the burning apartment.

"So, when I was coming out I saw our neighbor from the upper floor, she was dropping her babies and I had caught one of them," said Zna Gresham. "And, I had rushed to the back to put the baby down to try to catch others but I couldn't."

Three women, two men and three children were all rushed to the hospital with smoke inhalation. One of the women had minor burns.
