Crews showed up to find an RV fully engulfed. A neighbor quickly warned others to get out of the nearby home.

"He ran in there, banged on the door until they answered. Everyone got out and then he was on the phone with the fire department," said one neighbor.

It wasn't until fire crews doused the fire when they discovered a body inside the home.
