Lamonta Stroud, 18, a student at Rockdale County High School, said he and his brother heard screaming from a neighbor's house on Pinedale Circle on Tuesday night and ran outside to find the house on fire. Stroud told reporters that he ran across the street and tried to get the children in the house to jump out of a window, but they were too afraid to follow his instructions. Stroud said he wanted to go up the stairs inside the burning house but the flames were too hot. Four children died in the fire. -- Staff Photo: Sue Ann Kuhn-Smith
