Residents of an Orange County apartment jumped from a window as flames ripped through the home.

The fire broke out late Thursday at the Avesta Rolling Hills Apartments off Hastings Street.

Fire crews were able to keep the majority of the damage contained to the two-story unit.

A neighbor told Local 6 photojournalist Mark Lehman that children were also tossed from the window to safety.  No serious injuries were reported.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
