GHOLSON (March 6, 2013)--Neighbors saved a man from a burning rural mobile home Wednesday morning, but the man then ran back inside to save two dogs.

The Gholson fire department was sent at around 8:20 a.m. Wednesday to the home in the 12800 block of Gholson road and quickly requested assistance from Elm Mott and Chalk Bluff firefighters.

Neighbors in the spotted smoke coming from the roof of the home Wednesday morning, called 911, and then ran to see if anyone was inside.

One neighbor continued knocking on the door until finally the man answered and then rushed the resident out of the house.

The man, however, went back inside to look for his dogs, which he was able to save.

By 9:15 a.m. the fire was raging and the roof was beginning to collapse as firefighters continued to battle the flames.

Initial reports indicated no one was hurt.
