"Three firefighters from one of our engines encountered a slight flashover, basically blew them down about two flights of stairs...We thought the worst at first...one of their Nomex hoods was almost burnt through. So he has some slight burns to his head," said Chief Dean."

Many people are homeless tonight, and lost everything from this fire too.

Want to make some more jokes you idiots?

God Speed to the people that lived there and the firefighters, glad everyone is alive!

From the sounds of things, all the injured firefighters are going to be OK, the three that got blown down the stairs and the ones who suffered from the smoke.

And for those jokers who can't post anything thing without making some snarky remark that's totally useless. Well, someday, you may learn, or the firefighters may be the ones who rescue you.

I'm just glad that these people didn't have the new radios yet, they might not have been able to call for help if this happened tomorrow with the new radios, they don't work well.

Having lived in this complex, I know it's the cheapest for the size on the west side--the walls and floors/ceilings are thin (I guarantee there are no firewalls), and the "jokes" about drugs aren't jokes; there are a lot of dealers and users who live in that complex, so yes, the fire probably DID take at least some drugs off the streets for a day. I was thrilled to move out this past spring, and even if I did not live in one of the buildings that were destroyed, this fire just makes me all the more glad I got out when I did.

Thanks everyone for all the help. my family and many others lost everything we have worked hard for yesterday. But everyone made it out safe. I have four children and hate to see that some people are making a joke out of this even if it is true it is a time and place for everything if you can not reach out to help people in a time of need you should not find the bad things to bring them down.
