MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Two people were hurt and several families displaced by a two-alarm fire in a Hickory Hill apartment complex Sunday morning.

Twelve units sustained fire, smoke or water damage. MFD estimated the damages at $250,000 for the building and $50,000 for the contents.

One woman who lived in the building had second-degree burns to her face, hands and shoulder, MFD said. She went by private vehicle to St. Francis Hospital. Another woman was treated and released for smoke inhalation.
