An Altoona woman called 9-1-1 Tuesday morning, when she saw flames at the house across the street. She tried to fight the fire herself before first responders arrived and the whole thing was caught on video.
“Right away I called and I called my brother-in-law, because I was scared, his house is so close, that it would just catch that house on fire too, it was scary,” Rice said.
The neighboring home suffered minor damage to its siding.
No word yet what caused the fire.
