The fire only hit one apartment, but the water flooded the four apartments below. Bummer.

On the 18th floor, sweet jeezus, that could have turned out MUCH worse.

I ♥firemen.

Heard and was disturbed by all the fire trucks whizzing by last night as well.. was fearing the worst for whoever was in trouble. Thank god no one was seriously hurt!

There was cell phone video of the fire on Channel 7 this morning, and it was even scarier than this clip. They reported no one was injured. Thankfully!

I wasn't sure about it but Vine is good for something it seems.

I agree Elyse. Vine has found its calling!

It's a fact that the fire department responded earlier the day of the fire on the 18th floor to the same apartment for a smaller fire.this makes me think that the tennant wasnt succesful the first time around.also this tennant has been in eviction proceedings with the village view managment.I hope they thouroghly investigate this fire because it could have hadbeen much more serious.seems like a persons total disreguard for his fellow tennants.
