A fire broke out in a condomium in Aloha just before 5 a.m. Thursday.  Two Washington County Sheriff's deputies were the first to arrive and used a ladder from a neighbor's house to access an upper floor window and help two people out of the house.  Fire fighters rescued a third person.

The two adults and a child were hospitalized.  Their conditions have not been released.

Invesitgators are working to determine the cause of the fire.
