BRYAN -- A massive house fire ripped through a Bryan home Sunday afternoon, burning it to the ground and leaving seven people without a place to sleep.

Fox 28's Lauren Holman was on the scene when it happened and spoke with one of the victims who barely made it out in time.

Texas A&m student, Keane Richardson, had just gotten home from his spring break trip and was relaxing in his room reading when he smelled something burning.

"I came down because I smelled smoke and we have a bike room that's in the center of the house and it was filled with smoke so I looked over to the side to see that it was coming from my roommate Kyle's room."

Keane immediately tried to put the fire out with an extinguisher but the flames were already to the ceiling.

When he was positive no one else was inside, he then tried to save their dog but the smoke was too heavy.

"I called for Ottie to get out and then I went downstairs and had to crawl out because I was tripping over stuff and I can't breathe. I ran around the side of the house trying to break windows so Ottie could get out and I just got to the yard and started coughing."

Flames quickly spread throughout the entire home, even blowing up two motorcycles parked outside.

It took ten units almost an hour to get the fire under control.

Unfortunately their dog didn't make it out but Keane and his roommate, Stephen Bratcher, say they're just glad no one else was seriously injured.

"All the possessions we have and all the memories we hold with all those things, you know, because we've lost everything but it doesn't matter," said Keane.

Stephen added, "Right now we're just counting our blessings and praising the Lord that no one got hurt. Stuff is stuff, so it's going to burn up but the things that are eternal are what matters."

The blaze is still under investigation and a cause hasn't been determined yet but investigators say they do not think it was intentional.
