"When I got there, I ran to the front door and the people were still in the house,” Davis said.

He said there were multiple pets that were in the home at the time of the fire. With the help of one of the residents, Davis said he tried to get as many animals out of the home before the fire spread.

Davis said it is likely several animals did not make it out.

“It was a horrible experience, it was awful and I feel horrible for these folks,” Davis said.
