"Immediately I thought there was a kid inside I started toward the building to look inside one of the guys tried to stop me and said it's too late," said Matt Gray.
Gray decided to grab a hose and start crawling into the home, spraying the ceiling as he went. He then spotted a man on the floor and pulled him out with the help of other bystanders.
But authorities say it was too late and the 60 year old man died from his injuries. Gray was treated for smoke inhalation at the hospital.
