Key Points

  • Meanings of the given phrasal verbs:
    Look on to watch something happen but not become involved in it
    Look out to watch what is happening and be careful
    Look away to avert one's gaze
    Look above This is not a phrasal verb rather a simple construction meaning 'to look higher kêu ca...'
  •  The correct phrasal verb is 'looked on' as it conveys the meaning that the firefighters (being professionals) fought the blaze while the crowd (who has no experience of handling such a disaster) noticed it without participating in it
     

Thus the correct sentence is: The firefighters fought the blaze while the crowd looked on.
