    I live a block away. A total loss for the beautiful home. The heat was unbearable. The home owner has burns and smoke inhalation. Hope for a speedy recovery for Dan. Thank you to the young man in the mustang who helped him and his dog out. Truly a blessing! Thanks for the fast response to the Cary fire department.
