Nashville, TN -- An off-duty firefighter was riding his motorcycle past an apartment when he spotted smoke billowing from the building. It was then that he took action.
Off duty firefighter, Chris Schrum rescued a woman from a unit, where, it appears, the fire started.
The fire grew massive, but firefighters were able to eventually extinguish it. A total of 16 units were damaged or destroyed in the fire.
One of the families was gone at the time, at a doctor's appointment. The couple is 39 weeks pregnant, and lost everything in the fire.
"Everything I own is gone now, so that's a little bit frightening when [we have] a baby coming this week," said Tim Watts. The family's pets were thankfully rescued.
