Flats' residents fears over bonfire heat

Firefighters stopped a bonfire spreading to an apartment block near Belfast's Sandy Row on the Eleventh Night, but the heat cracked its windows.

In the video, a woman can be heard shouting: "Get down, come down," and a man shouts "go down the stairs".

Part of Wellwood Street, near the flats, remains closed due to safety concerns amid damage to the building.

No-one is believed to have been injured.
