Some householders were awakened by the shouts of “Fire!” along with the acrid smell of smoke billowing from a section of the building.

Cynthia McKenzie, who has lived there for four years, was one of the few up early because she had a medical appointment that had already been rescheduled after she suffered a stroke.

“I had an appointment at KPH, so I wake up and went to the bathroom. I said to my grandson, ‘Where is my phone?’ because me always sleep with my phone under my pillow,” McKenzie said.
