According to the Atlanta Fire Department, at around 1:30am Thursday morning the department responded to a fire call at 22 Jesse Hill Jr. Dr., where there were reports of flames coming out of a 4th floor window.
The building, a former YMCA, is now a transitional housing facility, and was fully occupied at the time. Firefighters went through the building making sure everyone got out safely. There are reports that there were up to 3 people who needed to be helped down the stairs by firefighters, and one person who was initially trapped.
The Atlanta Fire Department confirms that there were no injuries, and on their Facebook page they said, "Squad 4 was able to make a grab on the reported entrapment."
CBS Atlanta says that witnesses told them that the fire was started by a resident's girlfriend, who first set his curtains on fire, then set his whole bed on fire.
Fire investigators are still looking into the cause of the fire, and have not confirmed the witnesses' statement.
