A dozen people are out of their homes after a fire at an Arlington apartment complex Saturday afternoon.
The fire happened at the Chula Vista Apartments off East Park Row Drive at around 5:30 p.m.
Firefighters said the kitchen fire started in a second story residence and spread quickly.
A mother and son escaped their apartment but the residence is a total loss, according to firefighters.
The woman who lived in the burned apartment was rushed to the hospital to be treated for smoke inhalation. Her son told NBC 5 she's in stable condition.
Two other residences were badly damaged by smoke and water.
Firefighters said kitchen fires are the most common fires they see, and that the fire serves as a reminder to never leave anything on the stove unattended.
