The residents were awoken by a smoke alarm, rescuers said, but two adults and a child had to escape from the second floor.

A woman was trapped, rescuers said, so the trash collectors used a ladder to rescue her.

There were no serious injuries reported.

The fire was brought under control a short time later.
