"I grabbed her hose and tried to do what I could to save her car but it was just too hot, and she had to get her disabled mother out, and it was pretty scary," said neighbor Robert Newcome. "I was going to run in and help her but she said that she had it...it's crazy stuff."

Firefighters on scene told Action News Now that squatters were in the house that was destroyed. Officials are working to determine what started the fire.
