Every firefighter's nightmare came true in Lawrence, Kansas early Friday morning (Oct. 7, 2005) when they arrived to find a large 3 story apartment building heavily involved with rapidly spreading fire. As many as 75 to 80 people were in the building when the fire broke out around 1:30 a.m. Three people are still missing; one person has been arrested and charged with arson.
