The scene remains active as firefighters report after almost two hours the blaze is under control.

Jason Perez is a nearby neighbor who was with his family when he opened his window this morning to see plumes of black smoke and flames emanating from 2194 Valentine Avenue.

“I went outside and I saw a lady come out and said ‘My kids, my kids are in the house.’ My mom started crying and then we saw an older lady come out and crying,” Perez said, describing the horrific scene and sharing that he tried to help provide comfort to his neighbors. 

This is a developing story.
