A bystander recorded girls and adults screaming for help on the balcony, attempting to get to ladders bystanders were setting up.

"The flames were spreading so fast", Nehmi said. Hanging from the balcony as the blaze closed in, the children were forced to jump to safety.

Officials said the fire began around 7 p.m.

Many passers-by and strangers were seen trying to help but it was quite hard as the ladder wasn't able to reach there. "A couple of seconds, and I can see smoke coming behind them".

Edgewater Police Sgt. James Dalton and bystander Tony Nehmi worked together to climb a ladder on the first story roof as thick black smoke and flames came shooting out the side of the building.

"People were telling me it was bad. The girls were trapped on the second floor and they escaped due to the bravery of these two guys". "I didn't care. I just want to get them out, before anything happens".
