Woman critically hurt in leap from burning Allston building

A woman was in critical condition after she leaped from the third floor of a burning house in Allston early Saturday, hitting a lower roof before landing on a fire lieutenant trying to erect a ladder to reach her, officials said.

Another four of the 10 people who were in the building at the time, including a man who jumped from the second floor, were taken to hospitals and treated for smoke inhalation and other minor injuries.
