Man Runs In To Burning Home (Caught On Cam)

Two people were rescued from a burning home in Massachusetts, thanks to a good Samaritan.

And it was all caught on tape.

On the right you'll see a bit of smoke....

On the left side of your screen, a man sprinting through the parking lot...

And with almost no hesitation, he runs right inside the burning home.

"We are very grateful for what he did, to risk his own life to save our family."

This surveillance video taken from cameras at the Brasco funeral home shows the fire in the early stages Saturday afternoon...

And the daring run made by Bobby Singh, a man who owns the convenience store across the street.

We spoke with Singh on the phone.

"And I say it's fire...it's fire...come outside, come outside"

Two men were inside this Waltham home.

With Singh's help, both made it out safely.

One of the men recently hurt his leg, an injury his family now looks at as a godsend.

"I say, you know, God's intervention made him down on the first floor, because he couldn't walk upstairs.

Thank God he wasn't upstairs because I'm not sure he would have gotten out."

The fire raged on.

That small cloud of smoke soon turned into a blanket of thick, grey smoke...that made it hard for firefighters to douse the flames.

"It was very difficult, until you can vent the fire, you can't see your nose."

The home, which has been in the Brasco family for some fifty years...is now a total loss.

"There's a lot of memories held in this home here and the structure's gone, but the memories will last forever."

But-the Brasco family is grateful for Singh's heroic actions...

"He's the one that actually came in, I believe saved his life and my uncle's life."

Even if Sigh downplays his role

"No, I'm no hero, just a guy that can help. You should, you know"

Fire officials believe the blaze started on the front porch.

The cause is under investigation.
