A Pensacola woman is hospitalized for severe burns after a fire broke out in her apartment.

The blaze started Saturday night and fire and rescue officials said the woman was trapped in the fifth-floor apartment.

Rescuers found her and took her to the hospital.

The state fire marshal said that several other people were also evacuated from the building.

Preliminary reports indicate the fire was likely caused by smoking in bed, but the investigation is ongoing.
