Good Samaritan Says Woman Screamed for Help With Fire

Good Samaritans helped a trapped family climb out of their second-story window to escape a fire in their Miami apartment Tuesday night, authorities said. Tommy Leverson, who responded to the mother’s screams, spoke about how he helped rescue her children. A neighbor who wanted to go by the name Ant said the woman was hanging halfway out her window while she was screaming for help.

Authorities say a fire in a storage building at a Yuengling Brewery complex in Tampa has caused an estimated $1 million in damage and took about an hour to control.

The Tampa Tribune reports  workers were evacuated safely when the fire erupted Saturday evening.

Tampa Fire Rescue Capt. Lonnie Benniefield released the damage estimate early Sunday. A Tampa Fire Rescue statement says the fire has been ruled accidental by investigators, and they are still seeking the exact cause.

Authorities say dozens of firefighters backed by aerial ladder trucks put out the blaze and one firefighter suffered a minor injury and was treated at a hospital and released.

Yuengling is the oldest brewery in the U.S. It was founded in 1829. The company is based in Pottsville, Pa.
