Prince George's County firefighters rescued three residents from their balconies after a fire broke out at their apartment building in District Heights.

Heavy flames were seen coming from the second and third floors, and three people retreated to their balconies to escape. All three are okay.

The fire was ruled arson late Wednesday afternoon and no arrests have been made.
