Two people who'd been reported trapped by fire that swept a Spartanburg apartment house last night jumped out windows just before firefighters arrived, but the "entrapment" call prompted a search of two floors while flames through the roof were still being battled. 

Both survivors were taken to the hospital to be checked out, although they did not appear to be seriously injured. 

Investigators looking for the cause of the fire say the building at the corner of North Dean and St. John Streets will probably be a total loss.
