Two injured in Cedar Rapids fire

Two people were injured in a fire at a Cedar Rapids condominium complex Sunday. Firefighters were called to the Shamrock Condominiums on the southwest side of the city around 7;30 Sunday evening. Firefighters reported thick black smoke coming from the two-story complex that includes 15 condos.

Firefighters found two people with injuries outside — a 27-year-old man who suffered smoke inhalation and burns and a 46-year-old woman who appeared to have a medical condition that was aggravated by the fire. Fifteen other people were evacuated without any injuries.

The unit where the fire started was reported to have significant damage, while two other units had smoke or fire damage. Investigators are still looking for the cause of the fire.
