One person was killed in a four-alarm fire in a Yonkers apartment building Sunday night, officials said. 

A second resident suffered very serious injuries after jumping from a third-floor window and was rushed to Jacobi Medical Center, Mayor Mike Spano said. 

The fire started around 7:30 p.m. at 112 Saratoga Ave. and quickly escalated when flames reached the cockloft and shot through the roof.
