Two girls jumped to safety from a fire in an apartment north of Atlanta on Tuesday.

At the scene, one of the girls in a third-floor window called for help after breaking the glass. Two neighbors below coaxed her to jump into their arms. The second girl appeared in the window and also jumped.

“I heard someone banging on the window — you could see the window all broken, so we just ran over there and helped them out,” said Deigo Silva, who caught the girls.

Officials said the fire destroyed the homes of 29 people, including 11 families. The Red Cross assisted those displaced.

Local authorities are investigating the cause of the blaze.
