Tiffany Square Apartments fire brought back memories of the Lakewood complex

I took one look at the charred husk of the apartment building, and recognition hit immediately. Even broken and blackened, the Tiffany Square Apartments were as familiar to me as they were 25 years ago.

In the early morning hours of Halloween, massive flames engulfed the apartment complex, killing a mother and daughter, injuring 10 others and leaving a host of families homeless. Some were forced to jump from the second story to avoid a wall of flames while others had time to grab children and nothing else before rushing to safety. Those who made it out watched their worldly possessions burn before their eyes.

The juxtaposition of the inferno and water park across the street is almost literary.
