Charles Golden says he saw smoke coming from the roof of the house and then ran and pounded on the door to get the family out of the house.

“The owner came to the door and I told him the house is on fire, and he got his, I think it’s his granddaughter, and the dog and they have a little girl also, and they got everybody out,” said Golden. “And as I was pounding on the door, we had the fire trucks coming right away.”
