MARIETTA — Marietta firefighters put out a fire early Saturday morning at a Franklin Road apartment complex that has been the scene of two other blazes within a year.

Twelve trucks were on the scene at about 4:15 a.m. at the Marquis View Apartments, where about 10 units were a “total loss,” according to Capt. Scott Dobbins with the Marietta Fire Department. He said the fire burned through the roof, but it kept to one side of a fire wall, which he said saved another 10 units from being destroyed.

Dobbins said some people were injured after they jumped from the second floor of the apartment building to escape the fire, but he could not confirm their ages or conditions.

Three people were transported to a nearby hospital, he said, and Red Cross officials were at the scene to help families displaced by the fire.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Fires also broke out at the apartment complex last year on Dec. 30 and July 27.
