Oelwein officials are investigating a fire at a house that had been turned into apartments. The fire was located in the second story, and forced one man to jump from the burning building. 31-year-old Shawn Gant was taken to a Waterloo hospital, where he’s in stable condition. Another man, Kyle Brown, had to be rescued from the fire. He was transferred to University Hospitals in Iowa City in critical condition, and has since been upgraded to stable condition. The rest of the building’s residents escaped unharmed, but there was considerable damage to the building. The State Fire Marshal has been called in, as it’s the second fire at the address in a week.
