Firefighters jumped into action to save a home from burning Tuesday morning in Mira Mesa.
San Diego Fire-Rescue crews were called to Worthing Avenue just after 6 a.m .
The man who lives here was inside when the fire started, ran out and tried to put the fire out himself, according to an SDFD Battalion Chief.
“Then suddenly I heard someone breaking the glass,” recalled neighbor Chaitanya Shah. “I thought something is wrong and that's why we came out.”
“All of these walls flooded with police, fire, and everything. That's how we knew something was wrong.”
The fire was contained to the front living room, SDFD Public Information Officer Lee Swanson said.
No other information was immediately available.
