CARMICHAEL, Calif. — A man was pulled out of a house fire in Carmichael, Monday morning.
Crews with the Sacramento Metropolitan Fire District knocked down a fire at a house on Claremont Road.
The man rescued by firefighters was taken to a hospital in stable condition, according to the fire district. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
ABC10 spoke with David Zamarron, who escaped from the fire along with the rest of his family.
"My family was sleeping. I hear my family yelling and all I hear is 'beep, beep, beep.' I'm imagining it's the fire alarm and then I wake up and all I see is black smoke everywhere, I barely see the hallway," he said.
He and his family of five were face-to-face with the flames. His brother was rescued from the blaze.
"It was my brother. He was downstairs, they had to rescue him. You couldn't see a thing. It was all black smoke, it was really scary," said Zamarron.
