A fire that inves­ti­ga­tors say started on the side porch of a Wauseon triplex early Sat­ur­day morn­ing, caused dam­age esti­mated at $50,000.

Wauseon fire­fight­ers responded just before 1 a.m. to the two-story, wood-frame struc­ture at 131 Beech St.

When they arrived, the five per­sons inside the three apart­ments had got­ten out, and smoke alarms were sound­ing.

One woman had to jump out of a second-story win­dow to escape the flames. She was taken to the Ful­ton County Health Cen­ter with back pain.
