At least five people were killed and as many as 30 are unaccounted for.Wind gusts spread it quickly through the 52 unit home.The three story building was only partly equipped with sprinklers. Many of the elderly have limited mobility, are wheelchair & walker dependent. It was observed to be like straw on fire. People were crying, people collapsed because they were watching people burn.
