VANLEER, TN (WSMV) -

Neighbors were unable to save a man from a house fire in Dickson County on Saturday night.

Firefighters rushed to the home on Highway 49 just before 10 p.m., according to Mayor Larry Robertson.

By the time crews arrived, flames had spread throughout the entire home.

The neighbor told Channel 4 that he noticed the smoke and tried to rescue 41-year-old Mike Hudgins. 

The neighbor crawled under the smoke to get to Hudgins but could not get to him. 

Robertson said that emergency crews from Cumberland Furnace and the Dickson County Rescue Squad responded to the scene.

Firefighters said the fire does not appear to be suspicious, but the cause remained under investigation.
