A massive fire erupted in a Pompano Beach apartment building overnight. Residents of the Royal Atlantic Apartments, at 110 NW 7th Avenue, said they woke to fire alarms blaring around 2 a.m. and heard people screaming. Arriving firefighters were met with flames shooting through the roof and thick smoke coming from one the units. Residents said it was terrifying as they made their way to safety. "It was hectic and scary. It was just black smoke, we could barely see anything. We had to use our phone lights to run down the stairs and other people's flashlights to run down the stairs. It was terrible, a few of us have asthma, it was terrifying, the worst experience ever" said Phylicia Eubanks. Firefighters were able to quickly contain the blaze.
