Quick action by a neighbor saves a man's life in Grand Junction.

A fire broke out in a mobile home around 8:30 Tuesday night at a North Avenue trailer park. According to the Grand Junction Fire Department, a neighbor, Luis Bizarron saw smoke coming from the home in space B21 and was able to wake up the man inside.

Both made it to safety through the thick smoke, just before flames fully engulfed the home. Fire fighters were able to knock down the blaze fairly quickly and both the neighbor and the occupant were treated for minor smoke inhalation, but will be fine.

Damage to the home is estimated at about 30 thousand dollars and is considered a complete loss.
