Amidst poor air quality: New York City ignites with controversial fireworks display

House and property tours are popular online, but one woman's has gone viral with her New York City apartment tour since she did it after her place got burned in a fire.

Kelsey Soles (@kelseysoles) provided the backstory as she explained how her apartment caught fire as she slept the night before and admitted she was still "in shock" from the incident.

“So I woke up surrounded by flames,” she said. “I was going around my apartment trying to find stuff to save. But It’s only up from here,”

Though on a lighter note, Kelsey added there was “a bit of comedic relief was that there was one really cute firefighter that was helping me put out the fire.”

She asked for a pair of shoes from her flat as she was barefoot, to which the firefighter retrieved her new pair of 3-inch wedges.

Kelsey then showed photos of her burned-down apartment.

For the video caption, the TikToker wrote: "My apt burned down last night life is gooooood."

While in another video, which she posted from the flat, you could see the place was completely black from where the flames had been put out.

In a follow-up clip, Kelsey responded to comments which were asking what the cause of the fire was.

“I don’t know the exact cause,” she said. “It was where my Wi-Fi was plugged into and an extension cord plugged into that.”
