911 tapes released in Hart City Laundromat fire

Audio has been released from the 911 call a woman made as she was trapped inside her burning apartment above an Elkhart Laundromat.

Tenants above the Hart City Laundromat, near Franklin and Union Streets, say they woke-up to an argument in a downstairs unit.

Minutes later, they saw smoke and flames and a man running away from the building with an unknown object in his hands.

Fearing for her life, one of the female tenants called 911; click on the video attached to this story to hear a portion of that 911 call.

The woman did make it out safely along with her pet cat.

Police are calling the fire "suspicious", but have yet to pinpoint an exact cause.
