All residents were eventually accounted for, but neighbors told ABC 13 that they woke to the sounds of banging on the doors, people warning others to get out of the burning buildings.

“I just gathered all my things, and ran out and hoped for the best,” one neighbor told Eyewitness News. “I ran outside and saw hundreds of people outside, and just cars everywhere.”
