MARMORA, N.J. (CBS) – A fire engulfed a building in Cape May County and two good Samaritans put their lives on the line to rescue two people stuck inside. There’s extensive damage to a salon with an apartment attached along Route 9 in Marmora, but no loss of life thanks to a father and daughter rescue team.
“It was engulfed in flames, like it was moving quick,” said witness Emily Scherer.
The salon was closed but two men were trapped in the rear upstairs apartment. The fire consumed an outdoor staircase which was their only way to escape.
