WATCH Children Escaping Deadly Fire in Dance Studio in New Jersey

NJ Edgewater Fire Beyoglu Lounge fire people jumping from balcony

"The flames were spreading so fast", Nehmi said.

The children were hiding from the elements on the balcony and began to throw down clothes and backpacks to make it softer jump.

The owner of the dance studio expressed thanks and gratitude to the first responders and good Samaritans who helped the girls escape.

The ladders were too short to reach the balcony and kept falling over, so Twomey said she made a decision to jump down.

Flames were whipping out of the windows as Mayor Michael McPartland said he and a pal witnessed a police officer and businessman rescue the children from the second story.


"It was one of the bravest things I've seen", McPartland told reporters. "The girls were trapped on the second floor and they escaped due to the bravery of these two guys". He said he called for help and that he and his friends tried to help the girls get out by putting a ladder up to the balcony and catching the girls on the ground after they jumped. "Great job by multiple fire departments". Some children are seen jumping onto the ladders, and, eventually, the people on the balcony are forced to fall 10 feet to the ground below.

Aside from the restaurant and the dance studio, the building housed a vehicle wash and an auto body shop.

According to Edgewater Fire Chief Steve Curry, five people were transported to local hospitals with non-life-threatening injuries.

Twomey said that while it's unfortunate that the studio and the equipment inside were destroyed, she's "just glad everyone is safe" and that "there were no awful injuries".
