ELYRIA — Firefighters rescued at least one woman following an apartment fire on Turner Boulevard this afternoon.

The fire, just before 3 p.m., was in a second-floor unit at 1879 Turner.

An elderly lady was rescued from her third-floor apartment, according to reports from the scene.

It was initially unclear whether anyone else needed to be rescued or remained in the building.

Heavy smoke was showing when crews arrived, and extensive damage was observed to the building, which contains 12 apartments.
