A Ring doorbell camera captured frightening moments this morning as neighbors ran into the street, trying to wake up people inside a burning rowhome. Video shows flames spreading along the front porches of row homes on the 600 block of Ross Street between North Sixth Street and Jefferson Street in Harrisburg around 6 a.m. You can hear the crackling flames and neighbors screaming "Wake up!" and "Oh my God" as the fire spreads. One man was trapped in the home. He was injured when he jumped from the second floor in the rear of the building. Harrisburg Fire Chief Brian Enterline said the man was taken to the hospital and is expected to be OK. The fire damaged five units (two of which were vacant) in a row of 12 rowhomes. The rowhome in the middle is uninhabitable.
