Neighbors first called 911 around 1:55 p.m. when they noticed white smoke coming from a nearby house in. Multiple people were seen escaping from the enflamed residences, including several children. An elderly woman was heroically assisted by neighbors as they were able to escort her away from her engulfed home.
