Crews plucked residents from windows in the three-story building after the fire broke out about 8:45 a.m. in a corner apartment, city fire Capt. Steve Ruda said.
“We had a ladder in nearly every window. People left their breakfast plates on the table as they scrambled to get out quickly,” he said.[picapp align=”left” wrap=”true” link=”term=apartment+fire&iid=6962982″ src=”c/e/5/a/Fire_Scorches_Berlin_5252.jpg?adImageId=12793211&imageId=6962982″ width=”234″ height=”154″ /]
