A man who lives next door says when he saw what was going on his instincts kicked in.

“I think they jumped out the back window and I think a couple of them came outside, I grabbed my fire hose and tried to get it out from the front. I got most of it, it looked under contained. The fire must have went throughout. I thought they would be okay. I didn’t think it would be that bad,” Ernest Breunson said.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.
