    I used to live out there and in the main building 705 a lady started a fire on the bottom floor. I was going grocery shopping on a Sunday and she asked me to help. I told her to call 911, but she had no phone, so I gave her my keys and told her to call 911 from my apartment. I stopped the building from burning down and never tried to get credit. I just went on my way to grocery shopping. It's dumb how everyone has to be a hero.

    The police officer didn't just knock on doors, but kicked doors in prior to the arrival of RFD. Great job by all who responded and saved lives

    Other reports say that the police officer went in and knocked on doors to get residents out. Good job officer! You are a great example of "to protect and serve".

    "A Mission Valley resident said the woman who lives in the apartment that caught fire told her she didn't know how the blaze started."
