A five-year-old girl held on to Christmas presents that were donated after a four-alarm fire at the Francis Drake Hotel apartments broke out early Christmas Day morning. Jones lived in the apartments with her family.

A fast-moving fire broke out early Christmas Day in downtown Minneapolis' Francis Drake Hotel, displacing more than 200 residents from an aging, once opulent apartment building that now serves as temporary housing for homeless people.

At least two people were hospitalized with noncritical injuries, fire officials said. Several others were treated at the scene.
