"We were watching one house after another just go up in flames. It was a terrible thing to watch. It was quite an unusual morning. We just watched it for about four hours," said Mary Lynn Miraglia.
"There was nothing I could do. It was an inferno and I just walked right back into my apartment and I left," said Bob Hepperle.
It's something that Mary Lynn Miraglia says she still can't understand. She now looks at life differently.
"It really changes you and makes you think very differently about what's happening around you. It makes you more aware of your surroundings I think and of course, everybody just feels so terrible for those wonderful firemen who lost their lives, and the firemen that are injured and also the people that live there," said Miraglia.
As Spring approaches, the support of the community continues to pour in for those who were effected by the tragedy. No matter how much time passes, Mary Lynn believes the support will never stop.
"It feels like someone in your family has been injured and you want to help and you don't stop helping because it doesn't go away for those people and I don't think it will go away for the community either," said Miraglia.
