VIDEO: Fire tore through Furniture Depot near 25th and Lincoln on Milwaukee's south side Saturday night, April 14. Residents scurried as the building went up in flames, fearing it was going to spread. It required a three-alarm response. "The whole store was engulfed," said Robert Bailey. Bailey said the blaze two doors down from him was intense. "The window blew right out. The flames were shooting way above the roof," said Bailey. The flames -- along with thick smoke -- sent residents running for cover. "You felt the heat. Like, everything was hitting you," said Jervitta Bradford. "I got everyone out the house and took them down to the corner." Meanwhile, dozens of firefighters fought the blaze.
