Emergency crews were called a mobile home fire along Limeburger Creek Road in Poca around 8:45 a.m. Dec. 2.

A neighbor said she saw the man living in the mobile home run out with his hair on fire.

The man wasn't injured but the home was a total loss.

Neighbors also feared that a nearby propane tank would catch fire and threaten other homes. 

"We were knocking on each other's doors making sure that they moved the vehicles we worked as a team and then the actual team got here and put the fire out thank God," said neighbor Dee Costello.

The cause of the fire is still unknown.

It remains under investigation.
