I heard banging and screaming at about 3am. It could well have been somebody trying to force their way in or out of the burning house. I would have tried to help if I'd gone out there, but I didn't know.
I thought the banging was coming from the nearby primary school. They're doing work there and I just thought they were continuing through the night. I thought the screaming might have been young people in the street.
It was only when I got up this morning that I heard what happened but I didn't realise it was so close.
I saw all the ambulances outside and the house was still smoking. It is terrible, absolutely horrific.
