Fire Investigators Still Trying to Figure Out What Caused Massive House Fire in Beavercreek
BEAVERCREEK -- Fire investigators are trying to figure out what caused a massive house fire in Beavercreek.
Flames were seen shooting out of the green vista drive home around 4 Thursday.
Neighbors say they saw smoke and flames billowing our from the back of the home and by the time police and firefighters got to the home, there was nothing they could do.
"Their house is going up in flames right now," from a 911 call.
A frantic 911 call as this home on Green Vista Drive, was engulfed by flames.
"And I went around to the front of the house and we were banging on the doors and stuff and no one was answering," said David Martin, neighbor.
David Martin and his wife took this cell phone video after they called 911 and tried to see if anyone was home.
"I took a look through the picture window, and I could already see the house was full of smoke, it was just kind of rolling through there," said Martin.
Even several feet away, you can hear the fire crackle, as it takes over.
"It was just, it was kind of like in the movie," said Martin.
The family wasn't home at the time, but got to the scene as firefighters started dousing the flames.
"She was saying that there was two dogs in the house, but she said that nobody else was in the house, she was very very upset," Martin said.
Unfortunately, the family's dogs didn't survive and Martin feels like he could have done something.
"Had I known nobody was there and it was just the dogs in the house," he said, "I think I probably would have punched out the front window."
This neighborhood, doesn't have hydrants along the street, and when firefighters tried to use a one closest to the home, it was across an icy bike path and would have taken too much manpower to get to.
So they had to use two hydrants from nearby neighborhoods.
Investigators are still trying to figure out exactly what caused the fire.
