It was a remarkable escape by a mother and her two children when fire broke out inside their apartment unit at Cambridge Apartments in Puyallup early Sunday morning. The mom lowered her kids out the window using blankets before jumping out. 7-year-old Jonathan and his 15-month-old brother Julian are lucky to be alive thanks to the actions of their quick-thinking mother. “She grabbed a white blanket and tied it on me,” said Jonathon. “My mom said to come to the window.” When fire broke out in their apartment around 1 A.M. Sunday morning mother Juliana Vega-Zamora first smelled smoke. She went to the bedroom door and realized how hot it felt. So, she immediately woke up her kids and got them on the ground and then to the window.
