Firefighters performed life-saving CPR on them and all three individuals were taken to a nearby hospital by ambulance.

Crews worked through what's being described as bad conditions with high fire, heat and zero visibility, according to Deputy Chief Robert Stoeckert.

Stoeckert said performing life-saving measures hampered their efforts in putting out the fire.

It's unclear how the individuals are doing at this time.
