Fire crews had to use a crane to get about a dozen people from the third floor of an apartment building Thursday night when fire broke out.
It happened at 74th and Cedar.
People told us that getting out of the building was a challenge.
Crystal Cooper said, "It was really scary. You couldn't see. You couldn't see. The lights went out, all the smoke everywhere. I was like, ‘Oh I can't see.’ I couldn't find the door, I had to feel for the door and find my way out."
Ted Washington told us, "When I looked out the hallway, it was the fire was just starting. So I went to go get the fire extinguisher but there was no fire extinguisher. So I ran up to the third floor and told everybody to get out."
Initial information indicated that the fire was in a hallway.
