(Las Vegas, NV)  —  A one-month-old baby is safe after being tossed from a burning apartment near downtown Las Vegas.  City fire officials say it happened Monday afternoon near Eastern and Stewart.  The fire started in a second-floor unit’s storage room, and an eleven-year-old girl grabbed her one-year-old brother and escaped.  A neighbor caught the newborn boy when his parents tossed him out the window.  The girl and her one-year-old brother were treated for burns, and their mother suffered a sprained ankle.  Damage is estimated at $50,000.  A cause remains under investigation.
