A visitor to a Loomis neighborhood spotted a house fire and did all he could to save the man inside.

Greg Weisman got to the man’s home in the nick of time.

“I hopped in the car and came around the driveway and I just laid on the horn the whole way down, hoping if anybody was in the house they would get out of the house or call people’s attention to it,” said witness Greg Weisman.

The man inside finally answered his door but appeared dazed.

“He came out and he said, ‘hey, my house is on fire.’ He didn’t know it yet,” said Weisman.

While Weisman worked to help get water on the fire, Cara Abraham dialed 9-1-1.

“We just noticed a black plum of smoke going up,” said Abraham.

Though firefighters got to the scene fast, the fire burned even faster. Within minutes flames had completely engulfed the home.

“I knew they were going to have to bring a pumper truck because I didn’t see any fire hydrants around. They started running these lines down here. The fireman actually asked me can you help. I said absolutely, so we just jumped in and  helped him drag his lines. It was pretty easy to tell that it was going be a big it was going take most of the house,” Weisman said.

Fire completely destroyed the house. There is no word yet on what could have caused it.
