WINTER PARK, Fla. (AP) - Authorities say a child was injured in a Christmas Day fire in the parking lot of an apartment complex in Winter Garden.

The fire burned two vehicles around 5 p.m. Tuesday. The Orlando Sentinel (http://thesent.nl/VxpQVY) reports Orange County Fire Rescue spokeswoman Genevieve Latham was not able to provide the child's age or name or describe the injuries.

She says several bystanders called 911 and firefighters arrived to find the two vehicles engulfed in fire. Latham says an adult was also injured but declined to be taken to the hospital.

No further details were immediately available.
