Three people made it out of a West End apartment fire this morning, but things might not have ended as well if a neighbour hadn't jumped into action.
Will Sterling lives across the street from 1219 Harwood, where the fire happened, and alerted the seemingly unaware residents.
"I ran over there, started yelling, clapping, screaming, and actually the people that were living in that building after I started yelling they looked out -- the guy looked out. He had no idea his house was on fire. It looked like he had just passed out kinda deal and then I told him, 'yeah your place is on fire, there's flames shooting out your building."
One man then jumped off the second floor balcony, while another escaped through the front door.
Firefighters rescued a woman by ladder shortly after.
Fire investigators are on scene, but early signs point to nothing suspicious.
