Dozens of Palm Beach County firefighters knocked down a two-alarm fire Monday morning at a Lake Worth apartment complex on Forest Hill Blvd near Jog Rd.

The fire broke out just before 6:00 AM at the Palo Verde Apartments and at least one person was hospitalized after being rescued from a second floor balcony.

Fire officials say four apartments were involved in the blaze and the American Red Cross on the scene providing assistance to displaced residents.

The cause is under investigation.
