I’m so sorry to hear that there was a fire, living near the neighborhood and I wasn’t aware. My prayers go out to all who have been affected by this situation. Love and Light.

Thank you for posting the video. My mother lives in the apartment unit next door. Very scary ordeal but thankfully no one was hurt. Thank you to the Firefighters that responded who helped my mom.

Crysthal – I’m glad your mom is okay and nobody got hurt. I don’t understand why there are so many thumbs down. Did these people WANT people to get hurt?

My question exactly. Those of you putting a thumbs down, explain yourselves, if you have the courage and decency.
