VIDEO: Terrifying moments caught on cellphone video over the weekend show several residents of a Denver apartment pouring out of a third-story window as they try to escape the flames inside. "They were pretty panicked. You could tell it was a pretty substantial fire," Adam Steinbach said. Steinbach was at home across the street when the fire broke out early Saturday morning near 22nd Avenue and Clarkson Street. He heard the screams before spotting the smoke and immediately rushed over to see if he could help. "All of a sudden the window came open, a lot more smoke. There was two, three people jumped out on the awning immediately... and I quickly realized they weren't going to be able to get down," Steinbach said. "They were talking about jumping and it was too high to jump, so I was like 'Don't jump. We will get you down.'"
