HERE IS A TIME LAPSE VIDEO FROM ACROSS THE STREET SHOT BY PK FROM THE HOT SHOW ON 95-7 Hot Hits.
He had this to say:
“This was filmed from our apartment across the street. We live on the 18th floor.
I don’t think I have ever been this freaked out. Maybe I just haven’t been this close to something like it. Fire is no joke. It is amazing how quickly it spread.
Please remember to thank your local firefighters for what they do.”
