KINGSTON, N.H. — A fire has destroyed an apartment building in Kingston, New Hampshire, in which a woman trapped on the second floor jumped into a police officer’s arms to safety.

Firefighters say five people were displaced by the fire Friday morning, which was fanned by high winds. The woman was taken to a hospital for evaluation. No one was seriously injured.

Officials estimate the damage to the four-unit building at $1 million.

The origin and cause of the fire are under investigation.
