Fire ripped through an apartment building Saturday night in Adelphi.

Flames could be seen shooting into several units while firefighters rescued people trapped inside.

It's a four-story apartment building at 9010 Riggs Road.

WATCH: ABC7's Richard Reeve says some residents suspect the hot, dry weather may have indirectly been a factor.
