Security camera footage shows narrow escape from burning building.

A 39-year-old woman and her five children were forced to jump from the third floor of a burning building in Newark, New Jersey Wednesday as flames closed in around them.

The fire erupted in an apartment building with no fire escapes on South Orange Avenue shortly after midnight, officials say.

A preliminary investigation suggests the blaze happened by accident, authorities said.

Good Samaritans on the ground were able to catch the family members as they jumped.
