Massive House Fire Caught on Video

      An elderly woman manages to escape with her life following a massive house fire.  It happened late Saturday night around 9 O'clock at a home on Island Drive in Lake City near Mathis.  The woman has nothing left, but is safe thanks to a few alert neighbors.
     It was all caught on video.  The fire lit the night sky near Lake Corpus Christi as it burned a two story home.
     Ray Krebs lives across the street and saw the flames and ran over to help a woman who was renting a back house on the property.
Krebs told 3 News, "I didn't know if she was in the house or on the porch.  By the time I got around there I couldn't see nothing, so I kept telling her to holler at me."
     He found her behind the house, and got her to a safe distance.
     All anyone could do after that, was watch and wait for volunteer fire fighters to arrive.  Ray showed us a painting of what the home looked like from the 70's when it was first built.  Now reduced to a chard pile of smoking debris, there is nothing left of the home.
     The woman did suffer some smoke inhalation, but is okay.  There is no word on what sparked that fire.
