Family flees burning home in Bordeaux neighborhood

Posted: Updated:

A man in the right place at the right time may have saved a family from a house fire.

A neighbor tells Channel 4 News that he noticed the Bordeaux neighborhood home burning on his way to work.  

He says he called 911 and started laying on his horn to wake up the family.  All four inside and their two dogs got out.

Metro Fire says smoke and flames were billowing out of the home when they got on scene.  The fire on the roof was so intense at one point that they had to pull crews out and fight a defensive battle.

The fire melted siding on the two house on either side of the home. The home itself is a total loss.

Fire investigators are looking into the cause.
