In Houston, a young mother and her three children had to make one last effort to survive. After the family’s house was completely destroyed by a devastating fire, they were able to see the tragedy with their own eyes.
One of many fires that broke out at the Cornerstone Village Apartments around midnight on Sunday awoke the residents of the complex.
The family was saved from their apartment balcony thanks to the courage of the Houston Fire Department, and they were all unhurt as a result of their efforts.
In the end, 16 flats were destroyed as a result of the fire.
Despite the fact that the source of the terrible wildfire is still unclear, firefighters were called to the scene at 14131 Cornerstone Village Dr. shortly before 2 a.m. to combat the blazing flames in the North Bend Apartment complex.
According to fire authorities, no one was injured and everyone has been accounted for.
The cause of the incident is still unknown, but the Harris County Fire Marshal’s Office is conducting an investigation.
While flames blazed behind them, firemen can be seen lowering the family down a ladder propped up against the rear balcony.
After everyone had been evacuated, a neighbor reported on Twitter that the balcony fell barely one minute later.
Another family of four was also able to flee the fire before it reached their apartment building.
