Some residents at the Baron West Apartments in Lakewood have no electricity, no heat and no hot water.

Wednesday night, a manger at Neighbor's Moving and Storage saw 9NEWS' story and decided his company needed to help.

Thursday evening, they moved John Bingham and Audrey Brown, who is 3 months pregnant, to an extended stay hotel.

The company is also helping them out with the security deposit and first month's rent when they find a new apartment. They are even offering Bingham a job.

The company is also offering to move any other residents in the complex if they find a new place to live.

"You got the snow coming. We're in the middle of winter. We got no electricity, no heat. You know, the owner of this Baron Apartments is just - he is what he is, you know? And it's just an unfortunate situation," William Edwards with Neighbor's Moving and Storage said.

Neighbor's Moving and Storage is challenging area apartment complexes to step up and help with discounts or waive security deposits for the residents stuck without utilities.

9NEWS has tried to contact the apartment's landlord, who is in Mexico, but we have still not heard from him.
